First ascent would have been in early 1970's but then I made the ascent again via a rock climb on North side in 2002.

nattfoddBlack Ladders  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 13, 2010


Climbed the Black Ladders via the Eastern Gully, in very good nick, especially with good ice on the direct start pitch. Then proceeded to bag a few summits so that the day wouldn't be too short!

Big Benn5 minutes on the top!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2009

Big Benn

Started in the Ogwen valley so a trudge along by the A5 and then up the tarmac reservoir road. But then onto the nice and steep track up to Bwlch Eryl Farchog and then the scrambly bits up to Penywaun wen. Weather slowly clearing from low cloud base as Judy and I carried onto the summit of Llewelyn. At which point the cloud base and wind decided to celebrate mid August in time honoured British tradition! So a very quick break on the cold summit before we retraced our steps to the valley. Lovely walk once off the tarmac roads, and in an area I have really fallen in love with.

APennineMan5 hours on the top and i still didn't want to descend.


Climbed twice during an end-of-school holiday to Ogwen. First time via Pen yr Ole Wen in heavy rain. A few days later we spent 5 happy hours on the summit in glorious sunshine, lazing around and soaking up the views- couldn't have asked for a nicer way to end a holiday.

Big BennDid it on an SP trip!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 5, 2009

Big Benn

Got to the summit again during a really great day's walking with fellow SP'er Lolli who had come over from Sweden to walk with me. We did a circular walk on a day when the weather was fine and mainly sunny. I'll add the route very soon, we both thought it to be a good one!

Big BennTwice Now  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2008

Big Benn

First did it via an easier ascent of Pen y Ole Wen in September 2008 on a day with no views due to bad weather. The did it on a superbly cold and clear 29th December 2008. Started to the North and never thought I'd get as far as Carnedd Llewellyn. But it was my sixth and final summit for that day, and I reached it just 2 minutes before my self imposed turn round time. A long and hard 9 hour walk for poor fat old me, but wow, the view from the top made it all worthwhile.

daveyboyGreat Day Great Weather:  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 29, 2006


Done this summit from the Ogwen Valley via Pen y Ole Wen and Carnedd Dafydd. Returned via the ridge east of the great reservoir above the Ogwen Valley. Crystal clear weather with views for miles even as far the Lakes and Isle of Man...!
Nice for the weather to be like that as its a heck of a drive from Kent.

Andy_HornungSeveral times  Sucess!


between 1983 and present day. Done as part of Carneddau Horseshoe, as part of Welsh 3000s and after climbing routes on Craig Yr Ysfa.

JackCarrMap and compass needed!


Cloud on the summit ruins my view everytime, but this is a fun day combined with Dafydd. Once you're on one, its a fairly simple walk to the other, though it is surprisingly easy to get lost.

DrJonnieLast top in the round  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 15, 1982


Continuing from Pen Yr Ole wen and Carnedd Dafydd this was the last top before the descent along the side of of Fynnon Lugwy reservoir. The clouds were still down which made the ridge traverse down quite interesting.

My wife and I climbed this on an incredibly windy day. We enjoyed the scrambles on the horseshoe but thought we might get blown off the ridge a few times.
