The only obvious route around these peaks, and a really good day out. It might be quite a long and unrelenting climb to Elidir Fawr to start off, but it's not difficult and nowhere as bad as sometimes painted and the mountain is a really worthwhile peak. After a very bouldery summit, there's a nice steep descent ridge path before the relatively easy-going traverse between Carnedd y Filiast and Y Garn - the last climb is a a test of the legs though after plenty of earlier ascent metres. Good views all along here, especially at the eastern end, before quite a steep and testing, but pretty, descent path.

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.
