We started by the Aber falls car park headed up onto Drum via Foel Ganol, then the three 3,000ft peaks of Foel Fras, Carnedd Gwenllian and Foel Grach, where we pitched for the night about 100 yards from the mounatin shelter. During the night the tent was being battered by wind and rain and when I awoke in the morning I poked my head out to be confronted by snow all around, which was a nice surprise. It was also the first real outing for my Laser Comp 1 tent which I was very impressed with.
We were lucky that the cloud disperssed to enable us to watch the sunrise before we descended via Carnedd Gwenllian, Bera Bach & Drosgl then picking up and following the Afon Gam down past Aber falls and back to the car.
This really was a cracking 2 days out in a very quiet part of Snowdonia with some stunning views. Really enjoyed it.
