Great walk but very long and challenging in bad conditions.

Amazing trail with great views on a clear day.

The hike up Y Garn was great with amazing views all the way, however we did not go up the Glyders due to the extremely high winds! (Storm Jorge) will be returning to do the full trail when the wind isn’t so bad.
