Great day getting this pair of HuMP's and stack of other stuff walking from Corris hostel to Kings over Cadair.Alex C04/09/2015
Used route C7 in John Gillham's mountains of Snowdonia Guide from Hafotty Fach to get up Tyrau Mawr and then along ridge to Craig-y-Llyn returned over Braich Ddu to the Blue Lake. If using an older map be aware the confier forest has expanded. Footpath past the hut circles gets very boggy, but the tracks for forestry vehicles are a better alternative. Finish with a dip in the sea at Fairbourne.jimclinch05/08/2015
