Cadair Idris – Sept 2017

Attendees: Dorian, Maria, Si, Ali, Dave, Andy, Maggie, Jill, Andreea, Gary, Darren, Sue, Ade, Simon P, Alan, Martin and Alex.

The weekend started with the usual fight through the traffic, despite all the jams we made good time and got to Kings Hostel in good time to check in and purchase a couple of beers! Most the group had arrived with the rest scheduled to arrive anytime from now until midnight.

We discussed the route for the next day, the majority, fifteen of us were walking up Cadair Idris whilst Si and Ali were going to climb the Cyfrwy Arete. The walking route decided on was the foxes path which we could walk to directly from the Hostel door.

The next day we set off in good time, the weather was excellent and we headed up to Cadair Idris, the plan was still good as the weather was on our side. We got to the top in good time so we decided to extend the day knowing that weather was going to be pants on the next day. So we headed across to Craig Las before heading back down to the Hostel.

That day we covered a total of 17.6km with a total ascent of 1,298m.

The next day the weather was as expected so a few of us decided to do a small low level walk around Llynnau Cregennen before heading back south and home, the pictures below are all from the Saturday due to the poor  weather on Sunday.
