A Critchley and Schwartz Film
by CaptainVertigo  25 Jan 2015
A Winter Climb of Glyder Fawr, Snowdonia, Wales is wonderful YouTube movie filmed and edited by Martin Critchley and Sharron Schwartz, two of our most experienced mountain movie makers. Let me quote from Martin's summary:
"This 8km winter climb of Glyder Fawr started from the car park at the western end of Llyn Ogwen and followed the ‘tourist’ route to Llyn Idwal. Halfway along the shore of Llyn Idwal we turned left (east) and climbed a steep slope to reach the start of Y Gribin ridge.

Y Gribin ridge is a grade 1 scramble in normal conditions but can be a grade 2 winter ascent. We encountered snow and ice at about 700m elevation. The final part of the ridge involved some pull-ups on snow and ice covered rock before the slope flattened out to reach the col between Glyder Fach and Glyder Fawr. Here the conditions were arctic with high winds and white out conditions.

We quickly proceeded westwards to the spiky summit of Glyder Fawr before descending towards the small lake of Llyn y Cwn and the steep man-made steps down the Devil’s Kitchen to reach Llyn Idwal again. From there an easy walk led us back to our car."

I have always had a hankering to get over to Wales to tackle a few of the Snowdonian peaks, not least because they are right there on our doorstep. It's great to get a preview from our highly experienced film makers. Sharron and Martin Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/B1967/comment/17814/
