Day out in the Carnedds.Erika14/09/2014
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
