Glyder Fawr survey result announcement date set
Bookmark and Share
The date has been set for the announcement of the results of a survey to determine whether Glyder Fawr in Snowdonia is 1,000 metres high or not.

On Tuesday September 21st, a press conference in the village of Maentwrog will be held to reveal whether the current exclusive club of 1,000-metre peaks in Wales has risen from four to five.

At present, Glyder Fawr is listed on Ordnance Survey maps at 999 metres, but old surveying methods can be inaccurate by several metres and a GPS study has been carried out this month to measure its size to the nearest centimetre.

While the mountain is lower than the confirmed metric giants of Snowdon, Garnedd Ugain, Carnedd Llewellyn and Carnedd Dafydd, it is the highest peak on the Glyderau ridge, slightly ahead of Glyder Fach, which is listed at 994 metres.

Two further peaks on the massif - Y Garn and Elidir Fawr - are over 3,000 ft (914.4 metres) in height.
