I love the Carneddau, and set out on the 16th Feb to enjoy a gentle walk on a "half rest day" up to the summit of Craog Eigiau and maybe higher. I took a narrow and gated road up from Tal-y-Bont to a small parking area. From which I could see, (left), the simple ridge leading up to Craig Eigiau, one of the lesser Carneddau summits, as well as the start of the track I would use, (right).
