Final stop on this day of changing weather. The sun was out by now, shining brightly on the band of white quartz on the way up here from Creigiau Gleision proper. A lovely spot with views across to Pen Llithrig y Wrach and the NE Carneddau. We walked back to Trefriw, having realised we'd never get back to Capel Curig in time for the bus now.thesweetcheat09/11/2014
