Re: cool

Thanks Jeffry, I've been on the Glyders many times but its always a great feeling to be back there enjoying the unique scenery and being silly on the cantilever.

cheers Dr Johnnie

That could have ruined your New Year,
if it would have broke. Thanks for posting!

Cantilever

Hi Icarreau,

thanks for your comment. I think there is another foto somewhere showing about 6 guys perching on the cantilever, so I think I was pretty safe. We tend to stand up there each time we go up onto the Glyders, its a kind of tradition.

cheers Johnnie

Re: You

thanks Fereidoun, it is always good to get to the top of your favourite mountain. It's not very high but it is a pleasant day out.
I had a look at your images, they are very nice,
cheers Johnnie

Love the pic

Lived in Wales for three years and I love pics like these brings the memories back. I always wanted to do a hand stand on the Cantilever but never got round to it.

Cantilever

Hi Mark,
thanks for your note, It is a magic place on top of the Glyders and the Cantilever is like an old friend when you reach the ridge.
One of my trip reports has a picture of the cannon on Tryfan I did try and stand on the end of it but I kept sliding back down. I have seen a foto of someone standing on top of it somewhere, maybe it was in Nanuls images.
cheers Johnnie

Re: Really funny!!

Hi Christian, thanks for your comments.
I was out in Capel Curig on Thursday this week with my mate Ken. It was raining when we got there and didn't stop all day. We just did a 16KM low level walk from there to Crafnant & back. WE laughed too as we fell in a few bogs.
cheers Johnnie

Re: Well done!!

thanks Alec,
This particular stone is a great favourite of those crossing the Glyders and it's traditional to do something to mark the event.
cheers Johnnie

Both in good weather and a white-out.
