Elidir Fawr 3029ft (923m)

Elidir Fawr sits above the village of Nant Peris, and is the first peak of the Glydeau ascended in the classic northern traverse. It's a long staedy pull from the village to summit and a steady rather than quick pace will pay dividends later in the day.

Inside the mountain is a wonder of modern engineering, a pumped hydro electric scheme.
