A spectacular-looking mountain day with shin-deep snow cloaking the Carneddau plateau. The Aber Falls are very impressive; well worth the two visits they get on this route, even if the steep climb up the valley side to Llwytmor from beyond them is a proper breathless slog. Most of the walking around the high peaks after that - even in these conditions - is pretty gentle and easy though. Bera Mawr on the way back is the star, a very jagged rocky little rise that takes a bit of a scramble to attain.

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
