Former official summit of Cadair Berwyn now replaced by the rocky outcrop which is 3m higher. The trig point at this location is in the incorrect spot and needs relocating. Views of Cadair Bronwen in the distant.giant_hiker03/08/2019

Off for a full day hike with a group of friends from Shrewsbury. Parked at the Pistyll Rhaeadr carpark, and a long slow walk up the Nant y Llyn valley. Steep climb up the ridge of Craig y Llyn overlooking Llyn Lluncaws, then a march along the top to bag both Cadair Berwyns, old and new. Easy bagging of Moel Sych on the way back down to Pistyll Rhaeadr across Trum Felen. 700 metre ascents, 7 miles walking, just over 6 hours (but with a big group of children).Cangarwbach19/04/2019
