We considered a rest day the following day, but quickly dispelled this notion when we saw the sunshine and bright blue skies! The ascent of Glyder Fawr and Glyder Fach from Ogwen was another long day, simply because it was too nice to rush.
We enjoyed scrambling around on wee rocks we didn’t need to just for the fun of it and took long, leisurely snacks beside the lakes. Lln Idwal looked very tempting to stay and linger and have a leisurely day, but the hills were calling.
This climb was technically easier, but just as demanding in terms of effort with nice wee scrambling stretches around the Devil’s Kitchen.
The summit plateau was amazing, looking like a film set for an alien planet.
At the summit plateau we had fun balancing on the cantilever stone – just because it was there. This was one of several times during these 3 days when we said we were “Old enough to know better, still young enough to not care”. We had watched 3 young Irish guys try it out, but they did not go right to the edge. However after they saw us do it, they returned for another more daring go!
The descent from the ridge beyond Glyder Gach is very steep and I did not enjoy the loose scree.
