A small party recce'd this walk last week. Somehow nine miles as posted in the Programme became twelve miles! So I have a plan B, which is better than Plan A.
Everything is the same, except we finish at Y Fron, so twelve miles becomes nine miles again.
So we start as before in the CP in Penygroes opposite Poveys Garage. The toilets are open these days. Come in good time to catch the 10am bus, about 100 yards from the car park. We have to wait five minutes in Caernarfon bus Station to catch the bus to Llanberis.
The walk is no push over! It has a height tariff of 2500ft, though it is all on paths. It has two ascents, somehow the second one seems harder, after five miles along the route. With views over Llanberis, then over Waunfawr it is a special walk not known by many. If the weather is inclement a picnic lunch will be taken on the WHR Station in Waunfawr. Our second ascent takes us up two short ladders, used by the quarrymen to get to work, then onto the special geological feature of a high plateau, still at over 1000ft. We achieve the summit of Moel Smythio, then past Moel Tryfan, which Charles Darwin visited, as sea shells were found the summit by local people. Then on to Y Fron, one of the highest village in Wales. Refreshments at Edmund and Rachel's home, finally a chauffeur service to fetch the cars from Penygroes.
