    You'll be fine, take it easy early on, climb well on lliwedd then it all starts....the climb up Wyddfa is brilliant. Then you'll murder the descent off Cynghorion.

    Re: Peris Horseshoe

    Think I'm going to do the half myself this year. Definitely tempted by the full though, but I haven't ran that far in quite a while, though I did a 20 mile / 9000 ft walk yesterday and found that surprisingly comfortable... Then again, running is a different matter!

    Is it stupid to go for it without recceing the Glyder Fawr to PYP section? I know the rest of the route very well but never been down that way before.

    Re: Peris Horseshoe

    I've just looked at the weather forecast, I might be having second thoughts!

    "Significant buffeting again likely on higher areas", "Rain & drizzle", "Chance of cloud free Summits? 20%".

    Re: Peris Horseshoe

    Blooming ace recce today. Nailed it round to Pen y Pass. Not sure it was the most direct off Glyder but seemed to have a path almost all the way and fairly runnable - or rather would have been in studs rather than trails.. Off to recce the finish from Snowdon down tomorrow... Walking permitted only :-)

    Re: Peris Horseshoe

    should be interesting tomorrow...

    Weather
    A rather cloudy day with outbreaks of rain. These light to start with but becoming heavier through the afternoon. Southwesterly winds also increasing steadily through the day and this, accompanied by the rain and widespread low cloud, will lead to challenging conditions for some climbers.

    Visibility
    Moderate to good, but very poor in any hill fog.

    Hill fog
    Widespread hill fog above 600 m to start, this gradually descending to 200 to 300 m by the afternoon.

    Maximum winds above 500m
    Southwesterly 40 mph.
    Scramble the rock face through the glare of morning sun to run

    About spot on, luckily there's almost no nav on this. Nice thick cloud over the elidirs could be nice too. Petty the wind isn't stronger, but some rain should make lliwedd more fun.
