Elidir Fach summit is a rounded, slightly rocky place. From here there is a 700m flydown to Llanberis, high over the top of the quarry holes.

Don'ts: 
  • Block the gate ways or Tracks.
  • Take off in the field directly above the Garret track.
Challenges: 
  • Can have VERY strong thermals.
  • Rotors on both lower Garret take offs.
  • Both lower Garret take offs have room for one glider only.
  • If you are not proficient at very small takeoffs in rotor do not use either of these the consequences could be bad ones!
