SH6254 : View of Y Gribyn and Snowdon/Yr Wyddfa from the Pyg Track. by John S Turner
Below the summit of Snowdon Glaslyn lies in deep shadow with its outflow, the Afon Glaslyn, seen alongside the Miners Track. The dramatic ridge on the left is Y Gribyn, which affords a route, for the confident experienced scrambler, up to Bwlch y Saethau and ultimately the summit.

SH6054 : Snowdon Summit (mind the step !) by Michael Westley
On a clear day, you can see beyond your nose - in fact for MILES :). But mind your step climbing up and down from the summit. How much fun it is to know the number of 'daytrippers' who go up and down on the steam train thinking they've 'done' Snowdon when in fact they don't take the final few steps to the peak.
