Another Epic adventure in North Wales 1st Summit of the day, from Capel Curig, climbing all the Glyders finishing at the Pen-Y-Gwyrd hotel.I took the ridge rising gradually to this summit,a perfect lead-in with amazing views. The track took me quite close and then i veered off to climb to the summit area to explore the cairn and climb all the rocky lumps vying for attention. Great views but Tryfan must wins on wow appeal. I returned to the path to climb Y Foel Goch.Dazingdale07/07/2014
