If you head to Snowdonia National Park, you are sure to see hoards of tourists ascending Snowdon, the largest peak in all of Wales. It is a hike of a few hours, up a well-worn path, or alternatively, a short train ride to the top - yes, there is actually a train - funicular might be a better name. However, just a few hundred metres away, is the unloved peak of Glyder Fawr.
Approach from the north, starting at the most western point of Llyn (lake) Ogwen, where it meets the A5. From here you can follow a track south, heading towards the peak, and soon find that the track disappears into a pile of scree. Watch out for Devil's Kitchen, sheer faces to your right, and clamber your way up to the peak, step by step. It is a climb that requires no equipment, but does necessitate large amounts of care due to the sheer walls on either side of you. From the top you can continue south, walking down the grass slopes, follow along the ridges to a new peak, or return from where you came.
