Circular from Ogwen. Tryfan, Glyder Fach, Glyder Fawr and Y Garn.Dan Baddeley07/05/2017
An overcast day, but really warm and no drizzle. Parked up in the car park at the bottom, and myself and Greg set off. Couldn't see the top, too much cloud cover. Made good time and summited from the south side, via the scramble route. Quick hug with Adam and Eve, then lunch, a selfie (still cloud cover, so couldn't see a thing), and back down with another group leading. A challenging hike at times with visibility hampering finding good routes.davenicoll01/05/2017
