Today’s walk at 7?? miles and 3,000ft of ascent was possibly the toughest that I have ever undertaken. This was due to the rugged terrain and a blazing sun. The approach to today’s mountain was steep but not too difficult. However, the last 1,000ft of ascent was one long scramble calling for some rock climbing up the ridge of Daiar Ddu. Had I known that it was to be so difficult then I might not have tackled it, but having done so and survived, gave a great sense of achievement. The panoramic views from the summit had to be seen to be believed. It seemed as if the whole of Snowdonia was in view including Carnedd Llewelyn, Carnedd Dafydd, Tryfan,The Glyders and the whole of the Snowdon Horseshoe. To the south, I could even see the sea beyond the Llyn Peninsula. In retrospect, perhaps the effort and pain was worthwhile having been able to take in such memorable views.
