From Llewelyn you could descend back via Cwm Llugwy to the start if you wanted a circular walk – that’s described in more detail here – High Carneddau from Ogwen. The Carneddau become so expansive to the north that there’s just too many permutations. One point, whether you’re on a pathway or not, the last five-hundred meters to the summits consists of rocks that you need to scramble over. To there North there are fantastic views of Foel Fras to Llyn Anafon and Ynys Seiriol, while to the south and west there are the slopes of Foel Fras, and to the eastern side of Foel-Fras, the Graveyard Slope (There were so many plane crashes between here and Foel Grach that the area was dubbed ‘The Graveyard’ by RAF Llandwrog’s MR team) of Foel Fras as this area is dotted with WWII air crash sites. This route has a bit of a scramble as you ascend Craig yr Ysfa. Carnedd Llywelyn is the second highest mountain in Wales at 1064m in height.

It is probably best to park at the Aber Falls car park as it reduces road walking at the end, but if you can get to the car park at SH 675 716 then your feet will thank you later. While the short section of scrambling isn’t technically difficult, you do need to lift your entire weight onto a narrow ledge on the first section, then use this angled ledge to work your way up. This approach shares the initial sections with the Crib Lem route, but then takes on a blunt grassy ridge. That ensures that it doesn’t attract the same level of crowds and you might even get the summit to yourself on a weekday in season if you’re lucky. An alternative is to use the BMC mountain Map which is a cross between the OS Leisure maps and the OS Landranger. We were lucky that it was dry, however, I can imagine in the wet, it can be tough to get over these slippery rocks.

The route will need care in mist, but the ridge walking makes the going obvious in fine weather. By this point, on a clear day, you can see the summit on your left-hand-side. How Far is it to the top of Carnedd Llywelyn and Dafydd? The Bull in Llanbedr y Cennin is a cosy pub, as is the Ty Gwyn Hotel in Rowen – which are on the way to Cwm Eigiau??

9 While you may think that it’s all downhill from here, there’s a whopping 15km of downhill to contend with, and another four summits, before you arrive at Abergwyngregyn. Note that an alternative section here would be to continue along the ridge towards Foel Ganol and Foel Dduarth. ... From here the views are superb especially across to Yr Elen and Carnedd Llewellyn. Our route takes us south to Aber Falls (about two miles and 600ft of climbing), on to the summits of Foel-Fras and Carnedd Llewelyn before finally considering the Pen yr Helgi Du Helgi summit.
