A great walk over Glyder Fach and Glyder Fawr with a bit of easy scrambling (Unless you want to 'go round') in places 'on top'. The ascent is via Cwm Bochlwyd, Bwlch Tryfan and the head of Cwm Tryfan before the final steady climb to Glyder Fach. The "path" towards Glyder Fawr, via Castell y Gwynt and Bwlch y Ddwy Glyder affords fantastic views in all directions (if it's as clear as on the recce).
We descend from Glyder Fawr to Llyn y Cwn and then to Idwal.
Recce (GPS) distance 6.6mi
There are major construction works by Ogwen Cottage but the toilets are open.
On Monday, the money-eating meter on the car park was thoroughly wrapped up and out of use.
As there have been instances of Mr Plod attaching parking tickets to cars parked on the pavement you may prefer to park on the first layby, a few hundred yds East of Ogwen Cottage.
Any queries??

Weather forecast indicates good weather on Sunday with 90% probability of cloud-free summits and little, if any chance of rain.
It will be a good idea to have gloves etc as temperatures forecast at 3000ft are only a few degrees above freezing.
On the recce both Lew and I regretted not having "winter drawers on".
If you want the full mountain forecast, Google "MWIS"
