Intended to do snowdon from the carpark at the pass but when we got there it was packed so decided to do it on the sunday and do a walk from the campsite instead. It was a good little walk over some nice grassy bumps. The rout down was not on paths we just followed the hillside down the paths shown on the map dont seem to be there any more .

It's a nice wander. I did Moel Elio from llanberis a few years ago. I'd done Snowdon horseshoe the day before but my plan for Tryfan went as my back was wrecking. I did these hills instead and my back was fine. It was only when driving that it was bad. I had a hairy drive back to Richmond, Yorkshire as I had to stop every 15mins or so. Took me 6 hours to do a 3 hour journey. Having a spasm when approaching busy roundabouts wasn't much fun.
