'A' walk
A spectacular walk to the second highest summit in Wales. Carnedd Llewelyn (3490 ft.). Our route takes us from Tal-y-waun, which is approximately 2km beyond Capel Curig on the A5, to the col above the Llyn Cowlyd Reservoir. From here we contour around Pen Llithrig y Grach to gain the summit of Pen y Hely Du (2732 ft.) via its east ridge. From here we descend slightly by a short scramble to the col opposite Craig Yr Ysfa and then ascend the Southeast ridge of Carnedd Liewelyn to the summit. On a fine day the views are fantastic. Almost every 3000 ft. peak in Wales can be seen. From the summit of Carnedd Llewelyn we descend to the col before Foel Grach and then down the broad pleasant ridge above Craig Fawr to Tal y Llyn. From here we travel Southeastwards over a small spur to Carreg Wen near the Llyn Cowlyd Reservoir dam. We then travel west along a pleasant track to complete our walk at Trefriw.

Then Northwest to cross the head of Llyn Cowlyd Reservoir and ascend the Southwest side of Pen Llithrig y Wrach 2621 ft. (The hill of the slippery witch!). Given favourable weather the views from the summit are excellent.
