Upper pit of Upper Glynrhonwy Quarry
This is a deep pit with sheer walls, the most terrifying of all the pits in the Llanberis area. In addition, it gained a notoriety in the post war years when, as the MOD's pit 3C, thousands of tons of explosives and detenators were left lying around on the pit floor.
