Moel Eilio

With: Nic, Martin, Becky, Nige, George & Eliza

Weather: Mild; Light Winds; Cloud lifting and dropping around the summits throughout the day

Where: Snowdonia

The weather on Friday was somewhat improved on the day before & we were joined by Becky & Nige. Its a shame Jo, Billy & Evelyn couldn't be with us to make it a "full set". The day started in Pete's Eats for breakfast - a good start!

The plan was to take a tour of the hills to the south of Llaneris with Moel Eilio our main target. From Pete's Eats it was a short walk along the still flood damaged main street before taking a right on the road towards the Youth Hostel. As we left the village the road became a track and the track ultimately a footpath as we headed up Maesgwm. At Bwlch Maesgwm we struck up the grassy hill, a steep ascent for a five year old, to the summit of Foel Goch.

From Foel Goch we followed the undulations across Foel Gron with the impressive Cwm Cesig to our right. A brief lunch stop on the ridge provided the fuel necessary for a young man to make his summit assault on Moel Eillio. The cloud began to lift at this point providing us with an improving lighter & brighter outlook for the remainder of the day. Moel Eilio summit was our high point.

Our descent back towards Llanberis afforded some of the best views of the day.
