We had a very enjoyable weekend, with a total of 42 walkers and 4 volunteers .

On arrival at 12 noon on Friday, we set off at 1pm after a light lunch.

First up Glyder  Fawr (999m) via the famous devils kitchen route passing the beautiful lake Llyn Idwal.
The last 300m marked path was made of small stones. The Summit is rocky.
Then the ridge walk towards Glyder Fach (994m). This section has unique amazing large boulders making some sections very challenging.

The summit Glyder Fach has a hugh slightly sloping stone slab where 20 to 30 persons can stand.

Coming down a very steep rocky slope towards lake Llyn Bochlwyd. These steep two peaks make a very challenging and unique trek of app 6 miles.

Saturday was raining and gave us time to rest and get to know the team.

Our wonderful volunteers made the meals.  Thank you so much!

Sunday the weather was brilliant, and we were all ready and started at 7 am.

Carnedd Llewelyn (1064m), Carnedd Dafydd (1044m), and Pen yr Ole (878m)

This three peaks is a beautiful challenge of app  8 miles with some fantastic scenery.

Both treks are a perfect training for any foreign high altitude treks.

We  stayed at Idwal YHA having booked the whole unit – 43 beds. A very nice place.
