A new release of the UK Prominent Peaks tables and maps is now available. This follows the announcement of survey results for Glyder Fawr in Snowdonia which demonstrate that it is more than one thousand metres high.

Earlier this week G & J Surveys announced that Glyder Fawr’s height was 1000.8 metres. This was the result of a new survey accurate to ± 5 cm. The photo above shows the summit pinnacle which is a mere 2 mm higher than the rock on the right. The Snowdon/Yr Wddyfa range is behind Glyder Fawr.

In the UK Prominent Peaks classification, Glyder Fawr joins the H1000 height category. It therefore becomes the 134th peak in the Prominent Thousanders challenge. The UK Prominent Peaks website has been updated with the new survey results and also the results of earlier surveys on Tryfan and Kinder Scout.
