Y Garn via Devil’s Kitchen

This is a circular walk of 6 miles to the summit of Y Garn, via the Devil’s Kitchen. 

The path through Cwm Idwal and climbing through the Devil’s Kitchen is good and solid, though the climb requires a good level of fitness.  The ascent up to Y Garn is straightforward, but the descent back into Cwm Idwal is steep and loose in places.
