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

Third summit of the day after Carnedd Y Ddelw and then Drum on an Epic traverse of the Carneddau from Llanfairfechan. I saw a foal with its mother grazing just beyond the stone wall on the ascent up Foel Fras. This summit has a very exposed feel, with the area littered with rocks. The cairn shelter had a bivvy bag in complete with trainers. I left them there. I went on to explore the higher stones before dropping back onto the path next to the wall boundary and onto Carnedd Gwenllian. This summit was my highest mountain climbed at that point (after Aran Fawwddy @ 905 metres) and my First Welsh 3000 footer!Dazingdale05/07/2014
