|On the Sheep Walk next to the Devils Kitchen|
On New Year's morning there was cloud almost down to the hut, but as it cleared we could see a sprinkling of snow on the tops. A mass walk to Llyn Idwal then split into 3 groups and I went with the supposed "just going up Devils Kitchen and back". That soon morphed into going up the "Sheep Walk" - a nice narrow path across the rock face to the right of the kitchen. As we go to the top of that and the snow is was then "well it's not far to the summit of Y Garn!"
Looking towards the Glyders from Y Garn summit
The cloud thinned as we walked and there were great views out over the whole of Snowdonia with the snow fading in nicely around 2500'.

All in all a great couple of days on the hill to kick-start 2017!
