Last Dewey on a round of the four east of the main Aran ridge.chriswatson11/07/2014
Last hill on the longest day ever hillwalking. I reached the summit area in the dark and although it looked the highest point, the summit area is pretty flattish. According to my gps log I missed the summit by a smidgeon. My route was from Llangynog to Llanuwchllyn via Moel Dimoel, Cyrniau Nod, Cefn Gwyntog, Stac Rhos, Pen Y Boncyn Trefeilw, Pen Y Cerrig Duon, Foel Goch, Trum Y Gwragedd, Foel Y Geifr and Foel Figenau, navigating the last two miles from Lledwyn Mawr to Felindre farm B&B just outside Llanuwchllyn, in the dark, now that was an experience. I will be back to make sure of the summit some other time.Dazingdale06/05/2014
From Llanuwchllyn over Lledwyn Mawr and Fowl Figenau before hitting the Berwyn heather! Then out to Foel y Geifr before trudging back over Cefn Coch to Foel Tyn-y-fron. The descent was more pleasant!SS08/03/2014
