Distance 9km Climb 720m
Tuesday 17 June 2014
Today we drove to our start point Grid SH565 525 which is near Bryn Cwellyn Wood 190m. After collecting our gear and orientating ourselves we set off west and soon after crossing a small stream we started to climb steeply up a ridge to a spot height of 633m.
From the top, at spot height 633m we could see north east down to the waters of Llyn Dywarchen with the top of Clogwynvgarreg behind.
We turned south west with the ridge and after a slight dip started to climb up the ridge to spot height 695m - Mynydd Drws-y-coed.
The views were stunning.
As we followed the ridge around to 709m point we could see the Obelisk in the distance. Another quick decent saw us again climbing.
We climbed up to the Mynydd Tal-y-Mignedd Obelisk 653m, where we had a short break for lunch. It was near here we passed the other group.
A short decent south west along the tops took us near to Garneddgoch but we turned north west down the ridge before reaching the trig point.
