very boggy climbcolinfielding08/10/2022
From the summit of the road pass (Grid Ref 783 333) with its 531m elevation. A revisit to the ridge of Foel Boeth, Gallt y Daren, Moel Yr Wden (Bwlch y Bi), and Moel y Slates. Main reason was to bag Moel yr Wden as a Dewey, as just visited it in passing when on the Nuttall walk 13.2 in 2016. 7.6km there and back, with only 270m ascent, taking 2h 20m.silverwolf_alan08/08/2022
