Snowdonia Mountain Trek

Yesterday I met up with good friend Al from Gloucester and he drove us over to Conwy in North Wales.

Today we walked from Conwy to Llanfairfechan over Tal-y-Fan, a 610m peak on the end of the Carnedd ridge.

It took us about 5 hours to cover the 10 miles with about 2500 feet of ascent. Wind was gusting around 20 mph and we had squally rain showers every few minutes. Clouds stayed off the tops though so we had pretty good views.

Tomorrow we walk over the Carnedds to Bethesda. Keeping fingers crossed for a dry clear day.
