Well today has had to have been our toughest days climbing so far. With the plan of doing Tryfan at 917m (3010') we also scaled Glyder Fach at 994m.
The good news for us and the reason we did two of the most popular major peaks of Snowdonia in one day was the fact that they were next door neighbours, but this not make it any easier.
Our accent up Tryfan was tough going up the miners path, and then once we got the main climb up the east face leading onto the southern face it was a good old scramble to the top.
After climbing Tryfan we decided to just go for it and climb Glyder Fach which was opposite. We did have to decend about 150m and then climb back up 150m back to start the 250m climb back up to Glyder Fach's peak which stood at 994m (6th highest peak in Wales)
The views as you can see have been amazing for us all week and to get the weather we have had (albeit the odd bit of a 5 min shower) has made this weeks walk truely memorable and certainly recommend it to anyone who enjoys their walking / climbing.
If you do like the dare devil scrambling, then Bristly Ridge just before Tryfan is a definite, but must be approached from the North as going from the South is downhill and if you fall..........there is not much to stop you.
We however did NOT choose this route and walked round underneath it, and even from our point of view it looked immense and intimidating. Not one for the faint hearted.

We hope you have enjoyed the blog this week, and we will post once we have returned back home tomorrow as we still plan to do a 4 hour walk on our last day.
All the best
