Wilderness Wales



The Glyders is an area of spectacular rugged peaks. It's quite a condensed range of high summits that has roughly an L shape, sitting neatly between Snowdon and the Carneddau and giving excellent views of each.

The geology of the area is fascinating, giving rise to strange landforms such as the weird rocky plateau of Glyder Fach and the nearby Castell y Gwynt. Nearby Tryfan is an extremely popular summit, said to be the only mountain in Wales that can't be ascended without the use of hands
