An absolutely fantastic winters day. A great way to bring the New Year in. Great views of all the Snowdon range. We went down the path next to Bristly ridge. Strolled past two guys who were pitching the route. Rhys very tired at the end of the day

Nice easy scramble along the ridge line, my dog managed it no problem. Done it a few times since and always find it a quite route up onto the Glyders compared to others. Real good view's on a nice day.
