Event Description

Park at the Chester MC hut (Pen Ceunant Uchaf, Llanberis) at SH579596 (http://site.chestermc.org/huts/).  To get there: at the Royal Victoria Hotel in Llanberis; take the side turning at the mini roundabout; go straight on and up the hill, go about 200 metres past the cafe, and the hut is on the right-hand side,  just before the gate.
Start 9 am.  Do not be late, as the car park gate will be locked at 9 am.
 The walk traverses the full circuit of mountains surrounding Afon Arddu, and includes Moel Eilio, Foel Goch, Moel Cynghorion, Garnedd Ugain, Lechog and back down the ridge to PCU.  That will keep us well away from the bank holiday weekend crowds on Snowdon.  Distance 18 km, ascent 1300 metres. Expected time taken, including stops 8 hours.
 I am expecting a few walkers from the Chester Mountaineering Club too, so that would be a good chance to meet fellow mountaineers. Tea and cakes will be provided in the front garden after the walk.
