5 hours

Heavy rain & wind, cloudy & snow in places.
Andy abseiled on the groud & I sledged on mud.

Steady gradient not up the main route & steeply up the following tributary to 685675 then across to Carnedd Uchaf to Foel Grach then back along & over Foel Fras does to Llyn Anafon following the path back down.
Horrible long slog up.
