The Prince and the Witch

This is our big mountain walk this year!

We’ll firstly be travelling my minibus (just 10 minutes) up and over the hill behind Trefriw, to Cwm Cowlyd.

From there we’ll be walking to the summit of Carnedd Llywelyn (the ‘prince’, at 1,064 m / 3,491′ second only to Snowdon) , returning via Pen Llithrig y Wrach (the ‘witch’, 799 m / 2,621 ft) ….. etc etc ; and back to Trefriw.  In good weather the views will be splendid, but make no bones about it, this is a long, tough walk with about xxx of ascent.  (more detail needed, please)

Duration:  All day.  Please bring a packed lunch.

Distance:  about 10-12 miles / 16-19 km

Grade:  Strenuous mountain

Suitability:    Fit, experienced walkers

Remember that it can be cold at altitude, even in May.  And wet too. Full water/windproofs, plenty of warm clothing, and good mountain boots are essential.

Meet:  8:15 a.m. at Trefriw Village Hall (LL27 0JH, SH781631)

Walk Leaders:  Mike Bolsover and Nick Livesey (award-winning photographer)
