To start a year of mountain walking off well, Heather and myself headed up to Snowdonia for a weekend. We drove up early on Saturday morning and got to Owgen Valley for 11am.
We was soon on the mountain side heading for Ilyn ldwal. When we got to the lake we took a left turn and scrambled up towards Lyln Bochlwyd. During the scramble the wind was very strong and when we reached the top it nearly lifted us off our feet.
The weather was closing in so took the path down to the YHA.
The next day we started again this time taking the same path up that we took down the day before. The weather was a lot better but still windy. We had a much better pace this time. We carried on up to Bwich Tryfan.
As soon as as we were over Bwich Tryfan the wind calmed down and we were able to make it down to the road easily.
