I had another fantastic trip to the Carneddau on Saturday 26th September, which is becoming my favourite mountain range in Wales. The unexpected sunshine after a very windy night has left me a little scorched, which I didn't think would happen this close to October. The main reason for the walk was to tick off the three remaining Carneddau 2000ers that I hadn't visited (Pen y Castell, Pen yr Helgi Du and Pen Llithrig y Wrach). I also revisited Drum, Foel-fras, Carnedd Gwenllian, Foel Grach and Carnedd Llewelyn to give an excellent high level round. After the usual relaxed start, a walked over Pen y Castell, Drum and finally Foel-fras, which I reached in time to get the tent up and watch the sun go down. I was very pleased that I'd taken my four season tent for a pre-winter shakedown rather than my Rizla thin DCF tent, as it blew a hoolie all night and I was camped in a very exposed position. I woke up inside a cloud, so I turned over and went back to sleep. When I woke again a bit later it was starting to clear, so I had some breakfast, got packed up and set off towards Carnedd Gwenllian. I got chatting to a couple here who'd also camped out the previous night, and then set off towards Foel Grach. As I headed south I met more people, and there was a bit of a party atmosphere on Carnedd Llewelyn. We were commenting that if it was busy here, then it must be heaving on Snowden and The Glyders. I dropped from the summit along the nice ridge towards Pen yr Helgi Du, which involved a little light scrambling down to the col, and then back up towards the summit. This was the steepest part of the route, but my legs felt it more on thr ascent of the next and final top, Pen Llithrig y Rach. I spent a relaxing ten minutes sat by the summit cairn in the sun, watching the clouds and ravens playing in the wind before descending the relatively trackless and very damp hill towards Llyn Eigiau and an easy track back to the truck.
