Anyone travelling through the Ogwen Valley for the first time would be forgiven for ignoring the huge grassy whalebacks which form the northern wall of this handsome defile. Indeed, with Tryfanís striking good looks and the rock studded cwms of the Glyderau on display itís little wonder that the Carneddau are shunned by those hankering after exciting scrambles and memorable days on classic rock routes. However, if itís a superb walk in relative solitude youíre after then folk in the know will point you at those big old lumps where scenes of genuine grandeur can also be won, but unlike the cheap thrills of their Ogwen brethren, the secrets of the Carneddau must be earned. Spaciousness, fantastic views and an atmosphere of the ancient await you on this route which crosses some of the highest mountains in the principality.
