Carneddau Traverse – Conwy to Capel Curig

There’s nothing more satisfying than a decent traverse of an entire mountain range. This walk takes you loosely from Conwy over the Carneddau and down to Capel Curig.

Navigation can be tricky in some places, and you’ll certainly need to be able to take and walk on a bearing if the mists come down.

All in all, a satisfying day or two in the hills!
