Moelwyn Mawr and More – 29 August


20150829_001_Snowdonia-309-EditFrom Pen-Y-Pas towards Capel Curig

An uncertain and somewhat mixed weather forecast helped us decide to avoid the crowds on Cnicht and head up the other side of the valley to Rhosydd Quarry from Creosor. The old quarry road makes for an easy ascent and today it was an easy ascent above the cloud base. From Moelwyn Mawr we could see nothing, not even the “easy path” to Craigysgafn. Instead we headed back to the quarry and on to Moel-yr-hydd. Cnicht’s cloud cover remained firmly in place and we returned to Croesor through the quarry.

The weather finally improved and as we reached the car park the summit of Cnicht finally cleared!

















Early evening sunshine flooded into Nant Peris, just to rub in a bit of salt!
