Cwm Idwal - Closest I'll Get To Heaven 12/16

Posted by
Jules (Drayton, United Kingdom) on 26 January 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Cwm Idwal is a hanging valley in the Glyderau range of mountains in northern Snowdonia and is a spectacular product of glaciation, surrounded by high crags, screes, moraines and rounded rocks, with a lake on its floor (Llyn Idwal). Cwm Idwal comprises volcanic and sedimentary rock folded to give rise to the distinctive trough-shaped arrangement of strata known today as the Idwal Syncline.

The Idwal slabs and the cliffs around the head of Cwm Idwal are a popular area for rock climbing and the Devil's Kitchen has some excellent ice climbing during the winter. It is also popular for hill walking and scrambling, given its proximity to Tryfan and Glyder Fach and Glyder Fawr and their profusion of rocky ridges.
