Carneddau one-way walk north to south with Dave. Parked Dave's car at Glan Dena on the A5 (SH669604) then in my car to Abergwyngregyn and the small carpark at SH675716. 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. Approx 12 miles with approx 4,000 feet ascent (at an average speed of 2mph). Started about 10.15; finished about 6pm, slowed by the wind.Skip16/02/2019
