Did Snowdon via Crib Goch in the morning then Cadair Idris in the afternoon. Picked this up along the way. Doesn't look much from the ascent but the view back on the way up to Cadair Idris shows the impressive profile of this hill. Wind quite strong here even on a nice day. Good clear views.MysteriousSue21/07/2019

With Stig Nest. A wet and icky start to the day and almost zero vis by the summit of Craig Cau. But cleared amazingly before we left summit of penygadair. Walk out to myn Moel was therefor breathtaking. Descent back to the Myn path was in places pretty steep and rough. Would hate to go up this way.Laura.W22/06/2016
