starting on the A5 at the base of Tryfan and following steady ascent and the a grade one scramble to the summit of Pen-yr-ole wen at 978 meters above sealevel you are greeted with spectacular views of the anglesey, Irish sea and we were lucky to catch a glimpse of the isle-of-man and on clear days Ireland can be sea as you can from cadir idris and the Aran mountains.
we then followed a path to the summit to Carnedd Dafydd at 1044 meters above sea-level and a descent to the impressive Sgolion Duon ( black ladders) the the final ascent to the 1065 meters of Carnedd Llewllellyn.
the descent is a steep one and we found walking poles a must at places and some reverse scrambling.
Total distance of 15km over 6 hours in good weather conditions summiting three of the welsh 3000ers.
we would stress if walking the Carneddau mountains to wear the correct clothing and walking boots as well as a map and compass with the skills to use a map and compass,the mountains are open from the elements from the weather can quickly change on the mountains as can the visibility.
