Hope you enjoy.

View on Llyn Ogwen. I like the long shadow of Tryfan itself

Still views from the ascend. With the sun still low, shadows are long.

view down from Tryfan

View from between Adam and Eve. New shoes (see part 1).

This is already taken from Glyder Fach. It is a view back on Tryfan, which looks really small and easy from this point. No pictures in between the Tryfan summit and here have been taken, seen that I've come up Glyder Fach through a (I don't know if it was "sinister") gully which really required me to hold on with both hands. (Edit: I suspect now it must be main gully, which despite it's name is said to be technically more difficult and with greater exposure than sinister. Main is to the right, sinister more to the left.) I don't know if I really went up the stupid way, but at no point I could relax or let go, without trying to fly.

Looking at the Snowdon horseshoe from the summit of Glyder Fach


SAM_1238.JPG
Same view, but closer now, from Glyder Fawr.


SAM_1251.JPG
Before going up Y Garn, there's first the descend of Glyder Fawr, which is quite annoying with all the steep scree and erosion. Luckily, downstairs, there's beautiful Devil's Kitchen.


SAM_1257.JPG
On my way up Y Garn, looking back at the first part of the route, Tryfan, Bristley Ridge and Glyder Fach

Looking at Snowdon from Y Garn summit.


SAM_1270.JPG
The end of the walk goes through this nice little gully, looking out on next day's Carnedd Dafydd


SAM_1272.JPG
Day 3 starting of with an nice walk past Glan Dena


SAM_1277.JPG
Going up to Cwm Lloer, there's a nice view back on Llyn Ogwen


SAM_1281.JPG
Cwm Lloer. Found some people wildcamping, and they were right to do so...
What a stunning little mountain lake.


SAM_1288.JPG
Looking at the Glyderreau from Pen yr Ole Wen. Proudly showing of my newest boots (see part 1)


SAM_1305.JPG
Looking down the steep slopes of what looks to be Ysgolion Duon from the map. Anyway, the north side of Carnedd Dafydd.


SAM_1306.JPG
Same valley, north of Carnedd Dafydd


SAM_1314.JPG
looking down one of the gullies of Bwich Eryl Farchog, the ridge between Carnedd Llewelyn and Penn Yr Helgi Du.


SAM_1324.JPG
Nice little lake on the way down from Y Braich


SAM_1329.JPG
After the descend, looking west to Tryfan, where my campsite was.


SAM_1334.JPG
And a last view on Tryfan itself, in my opinion one of the most striking views of Snowdonia.
