ajberryAround Cwm Idwal Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2012


Most recent trip (I typically climb Y Garn every year, in the name of teaching students some geology at the very site at which Ch Darwin learnt his). Up via Devil's Kitchen, down the E shoulder. Wet conditions (of course). Cold dip in Llyn Idwal to finish things off...

pegasuslDone Y Garn a couple of times now in different weather  Sucess!


In my opinion the view on a clear day from the top of Y Garn is one of the top 2 best views in ALL of Snowdonia..!

Date Climbed: May 9, 2009


Did as part of the Tryfan and Glyders traverse. After terrible weather over the Glyders, the sun came out and gave us excellent views from Y Garn.

igneouscarlWalkers Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2008


Climbed from the Ogwen Cottage on the walkers ridge, brillaint but have mixed feelings about the path thats being put in place. Preventing erosion is good, but those horrible white bags look like giant sleeping sheep from a distance.

Andy_HornungHow many times?  Sucess!


Really have lost count of the number of times I've been up here both in winter via various gulleys, and in summer. Best Summer route for me must be the North East Ridge - a quality grade 2 scramble. Also done as part of the Welsh 3000s of course.

JackCarrFun ascent  Sucess!


Up Devil's Kitchen, along an easy ridge to Y Garn summit. Down the East side which joins up with Lyn Idwal. Nice and easy, but a really fun attempt.

DrJonnieA fine round  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 28, 2008


(The latest of many ascents) Colin, Ken Andy & I took the footpath from Ogwen Cottage, over the hill to Llyn Idwal, then up the ridge above the Llyn to Castel y Geifr and on to the Y Garn summit ridge. From Y Garn we continued on to Foel Goch and then returned via the ridge of Y Llymllwyd back to Llyn Idwal.
A fine day topped off by a couple of beers in the Tyn Y Coed.
It reminded us of an earlier day in October '82 when we continued from Foel Goch over Mynydd Perfydd and Carnedd y Filiast.

A memorable route in which you worm up a crack inside the mountain and then reemerge near the top of the face.

Peter HoddWindy!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 16, 2007
A lovely , vigorous walk up the right hand arm of the chair as seen from Llyn Idwal. Bracing ridge walk parallel to the A5 north made a good return back to Bethesda- but we had to watch out for the enormous quarry at the end of the ridge!

Dan Baileyeast ridge scramble

Dan Bailey

must be the best way up this hill. Only ever done it in the wet, when it can be pretty challenging; worth bringing a rope.

Over Tryfan and the Glyderau, summitted Y Garn and then dropped down into Llanberis Pass for a few beers and overnight camp.
I went solo, but spent very little time alone.
