GMC successful attempt on the 14 peaks in one daymike.hoult30/06/1985
On walk: Bethesda- Fynnon Caseg- Yr Elen- Carnedd Llewellyn- Carnedd Dafydd- Pen yr Ole Wen- Ogwen Bank. This is a fine approach to the Carneddau (Crib Lem is another good way- scambling- to the ridge from here). Fynnon Caseg is worth visiting on its own, today frozen and surrounded with icy cliffs it was very impressive. From its outlet I walked up the slope curving onto Yr Elen's excellent E ridge, much easier than it looks from the lake. Ice axe needed today.pwheeler16/03/1985
approximately five other ascents.thenomad21/07/1984
Among our Uni outdoor club the Welsh 3000ers was something of a holy grail.

Peak to Peak in 14 hrs 30 mins. (Ran it solo 9 years later in 7.55)Chris Pearson02/07/1983
