“Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so…. get on your way!”
Dr Seuss

Formed over 400 million years ago, the wild Carneddau range is a wide expanse of high mountain and moorland to the north of Snowdonia National Park, just a valley away from the busy tourist bustle of Snowdon.
Often climbed from the Ogwen Valley, as they are conveniently placed opposite the Glyderau, home of the famous Tryfan mountain, they have a multitude of approach options.

While the range’s 3,000ft peaks are it’s most popular, which include Wales’ second and third highest mountains in Carnedd Llewelyn and Carnedd Dafydd, there are quieter peaks to the east which are just as interesting!

We’ll be taking on Pen yr Helgi Du and Pen Llithrig y Wrach, the slippery Hill of the Witch, on this much more remote walk, enjoying fantastic views of the Carneddau and Glyderau massifs, Conwy and the Wales’ northern coastline.

A fulfilling mountain day, for those looking for something a little more interesting, challenging and away from the hustle and bustle of Snowdon.

“If it scares you, it might be a good thing to try.”
