Yr Elen

Hiking Highlight

Recommended by Dan

    Many people overlook climbing Yr Elen, which is to the benefit of those that do. With spectacular views and a jagged, highly interesting summit, it is surprising how little-visited this magnificent peak is. While it is usually climbed from the main ridge of the Carneddau, it can also be climbed from Gerlan, near Bethesda. However, this second option involves walking through wet valleys and a number of rivers that are difficult to cross.
