Carneddau one-way walk north to south with Dave. Parked Dave's car at Glan Dena on the A5 (SH 669 604) then in my car to Abergwyngregyn and the small carpark at SH 675 716. A day of two halves: before lunch it was sunny and breezy with clear views; but in the afternoon low cloud and squally rain blew in and the wind increased to 40mph gusting up to 50mph - arduous walking into the wind. Route was Drum, Foel Fras, Carnedd Gwenllian, Foel Grach, Carnedd Llewelyn, Carnedd Dafydd and Pen Y Ole Wen. Started about 10.15; finished about 6pm, slowed by the wind.Skip16/02/2019
