The traverse  Sucess!

Our Sheffield climbing friends Pat and Martin took us to Snowdonia for five days in May 2014. The first hike we did, was the Glyder Traverse which we did in pretty much total white out and rain. Nonetheless, wonderful hike.

Up via Bristly Ridge...  Sucess!

...down via Y Gribin. The summit is a nice perch and the views are staggering in all directions

Several ascents  Sucess!

Last time was in 2008 via Bristly Ridge, after climbing Tryfan North Ridge, but I have made several ascents over the previous 30+ years. A great day out.

Awesome  Sucess!

Got to the top via the exciting Bristly Ridge, definitely intent to get back up there one day and take in some of the other peaks at the same time. The mountains in the UK are one of the few things I miss about it.

Several times  Sucess!

between 1983 and present day, Sub-Cneifon Arete/Gribin Ridge and Tryfan/Bristly Ridge routes are firm favourites.

A few times  Sucess!

Best done with Glyder Fawr and Tryfan via Bristly ridge. Good to combine with Devil's Kitchen too.

Part of a classical round  Sucess!

My favourite way up is via Bochlwyd Buttress to Bwlch Tryfan and up the Bristly Ridge. Then after lunch, follow over Glyder Fawr and come down via the Kitchen.

memories :+)  Sucess!

Having lived in North Wales I have climbed it numerous times, but it never looses it charm with the wild jagged rocks, the wind that wails through and who know one day I may be able to do a hand stand on the cantilever

Often  Sucess!

Lovelly place, still got a picture of me on the cantilever on my bookshelves
