'The Castle of the Winds' which sits amidst the summit of Glyder Fach with its myriad of weird shaped rock forms adds drama to the already classic view of Snowdon or Yr Wydffa (Welsh for tumulus) and its famous Horseshoe traverse. Yr Wyddfa is the highest mountain in England and Wales and probably boasts the countries greatest all day scrambling ridge traverse. It incorporates the ascent to the 'knife edge' ridge of Crib Goch which rewards the scrambler equally with exciting exposure and few escape routes all the way to the Snowdon summit, sometimes with hoards of tourists who have alighted the summit by its unique mountain railway. The final traverse over the dramatic Y Lliwedd rounds the outing off in spectacular style. Out of interest to the rock climber it is also possible to see all the great cliffs of the south side of the Llanberis Pass including Dinas Mot, The Parson's Nose and Cwm Glas with a hint of the sinister Clogwyn Du'r Arddu in the far distance.
