Continuation of walk from Dibyn Du. Followed various ATV tracks on the higher ground east round to the summit to avoid the bogs. Proved easy-going. Walk continued to Crug Gynon. Solo.Man of Kernow130/05/2016
As part of a circuit of Disgwilfa, Graig Felen, Esgair Wen, Dibyn Du, Crug Gynon, Crug Gynon South Top and Pen-y-bwlch starting at 76984 65568. The circuit was over tussocky grass and peaty ground, if the weather hadn't been dry for the past few weeks this would not have been achievable.JohnStoneham08/09/2014
