Sticking with the Ogwen Valley theme.....this is from the lower flanks of Pen yr Olwen, with the jewel of the valley, Tryfan, directly opposite, with the Glyder range
off to the RH side, & Lyn Ogwen visible above the wall. I've climbed Tryfan 3 times over the years, a wonderful experience......though a friend of mine climbed
it & got caught in a thunderstorm on the top, & with nowhere to shelter he, & two other climbers were struck by lightning, suffering bad burns, but lived to tell the
tale afterwards......scary stuff !!
Many thanks to everyone for the terrific response to 'Ogwen Valley' !!!.....& special thanks to Anne, Kathryn, Nigel, & Paul for their UA's, & to Jeremy for the GEA !!
you've all done me proud !!......many, many thanks !!.
I've read just today, in a local paper that Tryfan has been voted top spot for great mountain climbs in the UK, along with others in the LD, & Scotland !!
