sunny
This 5+ mile walk provides some of the best views in Snowdonia (weather permitting) and reaches over 3100 ft. It is a walk rather than a scramble but in a few places it will be an advantage to 'pack the poles' and use your hands. From the magnificent and inspiring Cwm Idwal we pass the base of the Idwal Slabs and ascend to the bottom of the Devil's Kitchen. I can recall going up this 'crack' about 50 years ago wearing hob nailed boots but we will follow the path to the side up to Llyn y Cwn. (likely lunch stop). Then up the steady incline to Y Garn, 3107ft, with magnificent views over the Carneddau, Glydderau, Snowdon, Cwm Idwal and much more. The fairly steep descent to the North West 'shore' of Llyn Idwal leads back to the track down to Ogwen.
