South Carneddau circuit including Pen yr Ole Wen, Carnedd Llywelyn and Pen yr Helgi Du. Visibility was poor. Particularly enjoyed the scramble up Pen yr Helgi Du, and the soft walk back down.

Miserable weather! Heavy rain and very gusty on the summit. Descended down the rock and scree slope west of the lake (Ffynnon Lloer) as too windy to do rest of horse shoe. Fairly pleasant little scramble on the last 10 - 12 metres of the ascent up the rocky gully.

Drizzly until after Yr Elen. Started feeling very exhausted coming up to Carnedd Dafydd. Cleared up again as we arrived Pen yr Ole Wen. Once in Ogwen valley thought that there are "only" two more peaks left, but couldn't quite deal with exhaustion and darkness to make it back to Frondwyr (Nant Peris).
