May 17th - 19th:

Ascent of Cnicht and the Moelwyns.  Starting from the car park in Croesor the intrepid trio ascended the SW spur of Cnicht in good conditions - and with quite a few photo shots.  From the summit the descent continued NE and E to the rather complex col of Llys-Dafydd-y-foel.  Lunch taken somewhere in the wilderness preceded the ascent of Moelwyn Mawr.  The descent traversed the impressive rocky crest of Craigygarfn - (hands required on the final part!) - before bagging Moelwyn Bach.  A boggy descent down the W flank of Moelwyn Bach led to the minor road back into Croesor.  This was a good round of some 8-9 miles.  We had hoped to encounter the caving team on their way back from exit of the mine - but no such luck - we had to finish off the reserve flask of whisky we had taken just in case!
