Yr Wyddfa

Cairn(s) (Destroyed)

Yr Wyddfa (Cairn(s)) by thesweetcheat Yr Wyddfa from Bwlch Glas, near the meeting place of the various northern, eastern and western paths to the summit. The imposing cliffs of Clogwyn y Garnedd make for a dramatic view of this fine peak. Imagine a pilgrimage to a cairn on top of this, 3,000 years ago.

Brilliant ! Did you walk over Crib Goch ? It would have been some special cairn back 3,000 years ago ! Meic Posted by Meic

Cheers both! No, still building myself up for Crib Goch (one day). This was a crocked-knee walk up the easy Llanberis Path. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

I've not attempted Crib Goch yet either. It was the easy miners track up and pyg down last time I was there. The zig zags don't do the knees any favours either ! Meic Posted by Meic

My first trip was PYG and then the southern part of the horseshoe. The friends I was with did go over Crib Goch but I opted out. I think some less terrifying scrambling is needed first, to see how my head for heights is!

On the way back to Llanberis this time I went back along the north ridge (via Llechog) rather than on the Llanberis Path, the views of Crib Goch and the Glyders from Gyrn Las above Clogwyn Station are great.
