Part of a route that included Pen Yr Helgi-Du, Carnedd Llewelyn, Carnedd Dafydd and Pen Yr Ole Wen
On a course from Plas Y Brenin.
Bagged as part of the Cwm Llafar horseshoe from Bethedsa. Weather conditions perfect, very warm & clear.
Climbed after heading north from Carnedd Llewelyn to Foel Fras to 'bag' the 3000ft peaks I hadn't seen before. Then headed down west ridge before heading backing into the Carneddau to climb the Llech Ddu Spur the next day.
As part of Welsh 3000s. Also a few times as part of Carneddau horseshoe.
Long day out!
Having lived in North Wales climbed this a number of times including a couple of 14 peak round trips
I think usually as part of the 14 peaks
Climbed as part of the Cwm Llafar Horsehoe. The weather was pretty windy and cloudy the day we did the climb. Still enjoyable though.
dropped down to it quickly while climbing the other Carneddau, couldn't see a thing
Dropped my pack in the bwlch and made a quick trip out to the summit while doing the 14 peaks route.
I have had on Yr Elen, a lovely hill, especially at sunset in the summer.
