Cambrian Way Stage 11, Claerddu to Ponterwyd.Rob Rees15/10/2022
Carreg Naw Llyn, Domen Milwynkeithouk20/08/2022
A fine circuit of Llyn Fryddon Fawr from the cattle grid at SH 784 683, bagging 3 Deweys, and 5 Subs. A splendid walk with a feeling of wilderness. Mostly pathless, save a few sheep trods until a good quad bike track was encountered at Llyn Fryddon Fawr, which gave a quick way back. Nice and dry underfoot by keeping to the high points, and due to the dry summer. I suspect it would be hard wet work after a period of rain! Summits visited in order were Llan Ddu Fawr trig point, Trawsallt windshelter (and its wasp nest!), Llan Ddu Fawr, Bryn Dafydd, Domen Milwyn, Banc Hir, Geifas - West Top, Geifas, and Carreg Naw Llyn. A total of 19km with 600m ascent, taking a lengthy 6h 20m due to slow progress across the pathless moors.silveracorn_alan29/07/2022
