A dramatic, beautiful valley just outside Conwy. The drive takes you right through the heart of it and is just breathtaking.
You can see the scree path right up the middle of the mountain. It is a steep, challenging, dramatic, exhilirating path to the top
Pen Yr Ole Wen
Climbing this heather backed mountain takes you up on the Carneddau range, where a number of 3000 foot peaks sit.
A beautiful, still day for ascending Tryfan. Check the video page for the dramatic aerial footage we got from the drone on the way up.
The Devil's Kitchen
The route up the Devil's Kitchen is to the right of the picture. A dramatic scramble taking you to a plateau from where you can go left and ascend the Glyders, or go right and reach the summit of Y Garn.
Ascending the Devil's Kitchen
The route up is a bit of a scramble, but you ascend very quickly where the views are outstanding. The rocks are punctuated with bits of colour as wild, hardy flowers grow in cracks and gaps between the boulders.
From the Glyders to the Carneddau
This was taken from the top of the Devil's Kitchen , looking across to Pen Yr Ole Wen and the Carneddau range.
The Spine of the Glyders
The landscape when you get high up in the Glyders is dramatic and barren. At times it feels like you are walking on the moon.
A place of calm and beauty. The cafe on the lake allows you to sit, contemplate and drink tea.
