After the lovely weather of the 14th, the climate reverted to the more normal summer of 2008: cool with low cloud and drizzle!
This was to be my hardest mountain walk for a couple of years and I was very fortunate to have a expert on the area walking with me! Especially considering the scramble ahead and the very poor visibility as we made our way through sodden gound, crossing the fast flowing Afon Lloer more than once as we initially headed almost due North.
So now it was all tarmac back to the car parked alongside Llyn Ogwen. Still only not far below the cloud base as it had been for most of a day that had seen a really good walk. In what I am sure, (if I could have seen it), was lovely Snowdonian mountain scenery. Indeed to see some of the views have a look at my walk leaders photos taken on a similar route just a week later, (Pen Yr Ol Wen / Carneddau walk).
