[Some good neve, 3 kb]This ridge seperates Cwm Bochlwyd and Cwm Cneifion (so it also belongs to Glyder Fawr). A path lies on the west of the ridge but take the crest direct; reasonably simple with some exposure. A simple descent too.

Ticklists: Scrambles in Snowdonia - Steve Ashton.

uncontrollable - Solo O/S - 31/Dec/10

My first epic! Due to very deep snow this route took us MUCH longer than expected. We lost our way a bit on the Glyder plateau as darkness fell, eventually making our way back to Ogwen via Glyder Fach, the Miners' Track and Cwm Tryfan. Wading through bollock-deep snow for hours was incredibly hard work and the temperature was well below zero. We had both run out of food and our water had frozen, despite my new 'thermal control unit' for my Camelback! I remember bumping into a young man up there, a photographer, who was camping out, waiting to get that special photo of Tryfan in the morning. He'd driven for hours to get to Snowdonia, then hiked up [in the dark] on his own to near the summit of Glyder Fach to spend the night alone in the freezing cold just to try and earn a living! I let him make a call to his girlfriend on my phone, and in return we followed his tracks all the way back down to our car. In total we were gone nearly 15 hours. To make matters worse, it was 1am and I had a 3 hour drive back home ahead of me! We laugh about it now, but it wasn't so funny at the time!
