Bristly Ridge and the Glyders
We will travel to the Ogwen Valley Visitor Centre by car-share from Trefriw, from where we will walk up to Bwlch Tryfan to start the ascent of Bristly Ridge up onto the Glyders. This is a long grade 1 scramble with some exposed sections, but with plentiful hand-holds (see the ridge in the photo above).
Once at the top we will explore Glyder Fach (994 m / 3,261 ft), including the Cantilever and Castle of the Winds, then walk over to Glyder Fawr (1,001 m / 3,284 ft), before descending, probably by way of The Devil’s Kitchen, to Llyn Idwal and Ogwen for the car-share back to Trefriw.
Duration: All day. Please bring a packed lunch.
Distance: About 6 miles / 10 km
Grade: Strenuous mountain, with a long section of grade 1 scramble. Exposed in places.
Suitability: Fit and experienced walkers. Participants must be used to coping with rough terrain and long days in the mountains.
Remember that it will be much colder on the tops, even in May. Please ensure that you have good, warm, waterproof clothing, including hat and gloves, and suitable sturdy boots (no trainers).
