A really good walk, parking at Llananno, walking through Glanrafon. A bit of concentration needed to work out the ROW from the farm on to the access land, then to a pond and direct to the nice summit- well defined, walking on green paths through rough pasture/ bracken on an open ridge. It was too much trouble to try and follow the ROW from Bwlch farm so we followed the Glyndwr way to the quiet road and walked down it to Llananno; 1h 40 min, with brother, Pete.pwheeler02/05/2017
