The Glyderau (Glyders) is a range of mountains next adjacent to Snowdon. Our route will head straight up the North Ridge of Tryfan. The North Ridge is a Grade 1 scramble, and is a stout start to the day but can be made harder or easier depending on what is preferred (& if you know the variations well, like I do). The continuation to Glyder Fach is via Bristly Ridge a slightly more difficult Grade 1 with difficulties which are less avoidable than on Tryfan. After Glyder Fach is summited, then we continue to complete the Glderau 3000ft peaks with Glyder Fawr, Y Garn and Elidir Fawr.

  • Grade: 1
  • Distance: 18 km

The Glyderau traverse involves the summits of Tryfan, Glyder Fach, Glyder Fawr, Y Garn and Elidir Fawr. The North Ridge of Tryfan is a Grade 1 scramble, some of which can be avoided. Bristly Ridge has some slightly harder and less avoidable Grade 1 scramble. We will take it slowly during this part of the day, and because the group size is small (maximum four people), I will be able to coach you through the tricky sections. I am a qualified mountaineering instructor (MIC) and full member of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors so you’ll be in good hands.
