5th top of 9 on a 22.5km route from the Aber falls upper car park with Adrian, climbing Moel Wnion, Gyrn, Moel Faban via Llefn and Gyrn Wigau, where we stopped for a bite to eat, sheltering from the wind just below the pinnacles. Steady climb to the Summit cairn, walked around and then back for a few minutes to make sure. Continuing on track to Bera Bach...Dazingdale06/04/2019
