Photo of the Week

Glyder Fach (994m) is the sixth highest peak in Snowdonia and is characterised by the spiky rocky outcrops from which it takes its name. ‘Glyder’ is thought to be derived from the Welsh ‘Gludair’, meaning simply ‘heap of stones’. It is the result of a freeze-thaw action in which water collected in the cracks freezes and expands to cause splitting, further widening cracks to more water when it melts. Normally air temperature decreases with altitude but during an inversion as often seen here in the winter months, a layer of warmer air pins the cool, moisture filled clouds closer to the ground.
