Annual Dinner - Gribin Ridge Scramble & Glyder Fach summit

For anyone keen enough to attend the whole weekend, a scramble is proposed up the Gribin Ridge then traversing to Glyder Fach and the Cantilever Stone.  Descent by the scree to Cwm Tryfan.  Below are pictures from the last Annual Dinner scramble up Moel Siabopd.

The Notch with Llyn y Foel still far below.

Well deserved beers with the day's objective still visible behind.

The weather was remarkable, there wasn't a cloud in the sky all day. Although it was misty in the far distance, we were rewarded with good views from the summit, especially of the Snowdon Horseshoe and also of Tryfan and the Glyders. Despite some of our guests complaining that the extent of the day's activities had been misrepresented to them before they agreed to come along, everyone returned safely having enjoyed an excellent day out.
