About this spot
Carnedd Llewelyn is the highest mountain in the Carneddau range, in Snowdonia National Park.
At 1064m, it's 20m short of Snowdon which from the summit of Carnedd Llewelyn can be seen, as well as most of the surrounding National Park making it the second highest peak in Wales and 49th in the British Isles.
Because of this, this is not recommended for novice climbers and hikers. Prior experience of long distance hiking and navigating in the mountains is a must.

The mountain is difficult to reach and requires good navigational skills, experience of mountaineering and climbing several mountains from either the Southern or Northern flanks of the range.

If you plan to camp on the summit, ensure you have a freestanding tent as the summit is rocky with no where to peg down. Alternatively the summit shelter is great with a bivvi bag and tarp over the top.
