Start at quarry in mist. 017305. Path follows boardwalk making progress much easier up to the pond at 034302. Then kept to buggy tracks through deep heather, bog and tussock grass. Passed over Bryn Gwyn on way to and from the top of Post Gwyn. View from top clear and we could see Tryfan to the north. Returned by same route as rain set in for the afternoon.axe.stephen25/05/2014
