Nant Francon Pass (Eryri) North Wales

No walking for me; torn ligaments so a drive through North Wales for me instead to try and get a photo fix! The Nant Ffrancon Pass, Eryri (Snowdonia), North Wales, is a steady climb between Bethesda and Llyn Ogwen which divides the two mountain ranges; Carneddau and Eryri. The summit of the pass is 1,020 ft.

Nant Ffrancon itself is a steep-sided glacial valley dropping to Bethesda between the Glyderau of Snowdonia and the Carneddau. The valley starts in Cwm Idwal, carrying water from Llyn-y-Cwn through the Devil’s Kitchen and Llyn Idwal to join the Ogwen Valley below the Ogwen Falls on Afon Ogwen.
