From Carnedd Llywelyn  Sucess!

Linked from Carnedd Llywelyn after an ascent of the Black Ladders via the Eastern Gully. Nice views of all of Snowdownia from the summit!

Fine weather return  Sucess!

Walked up from Bethesda into the valley below Carnedd Daffyd with Ken and Colin on a beautiful summer day. We ascended the craggy ridge of Grib Lem and arrived at the summit shelter before heading over towards Llewelyn for a descent back into the valley. We had intended to return via Llewelyn and Yr Elen but cut our trip short as Colin had gashed his shin on ascent of the ridge.

Up from Ogwen valley  Sucess!

Went up via the east side of Pen y ole Wen, (not the full frontal very steep route), and then onto Carnedd Llewellyn. Dreadful day with high wind and very low visibility, so saw virtually none of the views!

Great Day Great Weather:  Sucess!

Done this summit from the Ogwen Valley via Pen y Ole Wen then on across the ridge to Carnedd Llewelwyn. 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.

Wet and Misty  Sucess!

Climbed after the Llech Ddu Spur on a three day hike across Snowdonia, trying to get myself into some lonely areas of the mountains. Climbed last April, also in the rain and mist so have yet to see the views offered from the top!

Several times  Sucess!

In winter after climbing on Black Ladders (Ysgolion Duon) in summer as part of Carneddau horseshoe, after climbing on Llech Ddu, after scrambling Llech Du Spur and of course as part of Welsh 3000s.

Map and compass needed!  Sucess!

Always summit cloud when I've completed it, so never get the views! Easy scrambling across the road from Ogwen Cottage until it flattens out into more of walk. Definitely combine with Llewelyn if you've got the time.


DrJonnie - May 10, 2008 8:03 am Date Climbed: Oct 15, 1982

Whiteout  Sucess!

A follow on from Pen Yr Ole Wen with Colin, Ken, Andy & his daughter. No views at all.

Part of the 3000  Sucess!

A long day!

Carnedd Dafydd  Sucess!

Having lived in North Wales I've climbed this a number of times including a couple of 14 peak round trips. I once nearly got struck by lightening on the ridge to Llewellyn from Dafydd, one of the girls in group had her hair standing totally on end


Charles - Oct 15, 2007 8:28 am

More than once  Sucess!

Often on the 14ers

Bring a compass  Sucess!

With 20' visibility on descent, I was reduced to dead reckoning.

As part of a traverse  Sucess!

I've visited this summit on a longer route that included the summits of Pen yr Ole Wen, Carnedd Llywelyn, Yr Elen and Pen yr Helgi Du. Was as cloudy as hell and I could see bugger all.

Cwm Llafar Horseshoe  Sucess!

My wife and I climbed this on an incredibly windy day. We enjoyed the scramble up the Llech Ddu ridge but had to hold on for dear life due to the gale force winds.
