This was to be the best day for weather so decided to try this one. Parked in the small car park at the end of the lane and took the track to the Drum. Started to get snow on the ground just before the Drum and the cloud came in. Continue on towards Foel Fras and the rain/ snow started to fall. Had to break the ice off the F.B to take photo. Round trip from car park to top and back 9.5 miles what a day.

I came up from Rowen youth hostel, where I was staying, over the top of Drum. The views today ranged from fair to decent. Angelsey and the Clwydian range were visible, but it was hazy towards The Wirral and further inland too. I continued along the Carneddau tops to the Foel Grach Mountain Refuge and then down to Dulyn bothy for the night.

Stone pillar located on northernmost 3000 ft summit in Wales. Asphalt plug. Public. National Trust. Snowdonia National Park. Direct ascent can be made from Aber or Llanfairfechan, but classic approach is from the south, along the high ridge of the Carneddau. A great mountain trig.

A revisit on the way to some other summits nearby that I had never visited. The trig still looks good but the views were not today - lots of low cloud. Took a pic of a Geochaing travel bug next to the flush bracket - its aim is to visit trig points.

In the mid 1990's I started walking in Snowdonia, then for 3 years I did all the 3000 footers (in each year, not in 24hrs). Will try and pin down the date more accurately. I've also climber Foel Fras from the Aber falls direction which is far quieter than from Ogwen valley.
