The long spell of severe cold weather opened up opportunities I could not ignore. One was to walk the area generally known as the Moelwynion, with Cnicht it's most well known summit, albeit not it's highest. Normally the Moelwynion have a reputation for being very wet with bogs you can sink into knee deep. But in the curent deep freeze I anticipated, (and got!), a surface frozen solid. Returning from South of the Aberglaslyn Pass, (to get mobile phone reception!), I had a glimpse of Cnicht shortly before I was to start walking to that summit via Ysgafel Wen (Far North Top) and Cnicht (North Top). A three summit day!
