It has just been Jonathan and I today and we decided to head to the Carneddau so that over the three days so far we have visited each of the main ranges in Northern Snowdonia. The Llech Ddu spur feels pretty remote by North Wales standards and sure enough we didn’t see another soul all day. I’m not sure why I don’t go there more often as its a wonderful route in a fantastic position and a very pleasant walk in. From the summit of Carnedd Dafydd we could pick out everything we have enjoyed so far this week and see all the way across to Ireland – incredible. Jonathan has joined us for our 5 day Classic Scrambles course which combines a two day intro to scrambling with the two day advanced scrambling and provides an extra day in the middle.

A lovely walk up Cwm Llafar
The bottom end of the spur
A grassy start eases you in nicely
A spectacular position as the route gains height
The route gets better and better
Blue skies, sunshine and warm rock – ace!
Enjoying amazing views from the top
