9th September 2010 New Super Mountain in Wales?

Press Conference Invitation:

When: Midday, Tuesday 21 September 2010

Where: Oakeley Room at Plas Tan-y-bwlch, Maentwrog, Gwynedd, 
LL41 3YU

The ‘Metric Super League’ is a group of mountains that measure over 1,000 metres in height. Only four mountains south of the Scottish border are members of this elite club.

However, one other mountain comes under suspicion. The mountain is Glyder Fawr (SH 642579) and its height on Ordnance Survey maps is 999 metres.

Can Snowdonia boast the 5th Metric Super Mountain? Will the course of The Welsh 1000m Peaks Race be changed forever more? Have Snowdon, Crib y Ddysgl, Carnedd Llewelyn and Carnedd Dafydd a new companion in the upper echelons of the highest mountains in the land?

For the answers to these questions G and J Surveys in conjunction with Ordnance Survey, Snowdonia National Park Authority, The National Trust, The Gorphwysfa Club, UK Metric Association and CREAD.Cyf cordially invite you to this press conference where the survey result of Glyder Fawr will be announced.
