Ogwen link up

Top of Tryfan
Cneifon Arête
Today was our first day in Wales and unfortunately it wasn't wall to wall sunshine. The odd shower made its appearance so we made the most of it and had a link up day of some of Ogwen's finest scrambles. We covered lots of ground as John hasn't been into Ogwen and he really wanted a big day. So our 8 hours saw us cover North West Face Route (Grade 2) onto the Idwal Staircase Continuation (Grade 2), then over and up The Cneifon Arête (grade 3/Diff) then down the False Gribin Ridge and up to Glyder Fach via The Chasm (Grade 3)...(not for people who drink a lot of beer!)...oh and don't try and do it with your rucksack on, its not easy! From there we descended Bristly Ridge (Grade 1) and then up and over Tryfan. Back to the car just as it got dark. Perfect.
