Sunday 10th June 2018 - Carnedd Llewellyn

     This has been regraded as an 'A' walk because there's some easy scrambling at three points. That means hands on rock, but no serious exposure difficulties; it's not like Crib Goch or Tryfan north ridge, and we've done the circuit as a club several times in the past.

    We will start near Llyn Ogwen at SH668605, and head up into Cwm Lloer and the first peak, Pen yr Ole Wen (978m). Then we can enjoy a magificent high-level trundle over Carnedd Dafydd (1044m) and around Cefn Ysgolion Duon (the Ridge of the Black Ladders), up to the high point at Carnedd Llewellyn (1064m). The return is south-east down to Bwlch Eryi Farchog, with dramatic views northwards into Cwm Eigiau, then a final climb up to Pen yr Helgi Du and south down a fine ridge back to the valley.

    Total distance is around 16km with 1000m of ascent - maybe 7 hours walking.
