Sunday 22nd October 2017 - Cadair Idris

     Starting in the layby at SH752135, we head down to the main Minffordd car park (toilets available), then steeply up steps into Cwm Cau. Then another climb up to the rim of the Cym, which we follow round to the top of Cadair Idris at 893m. The return is somewhat longer, over Mynydd Moel first and then down through the intricacies of Gau Craig, before a final boggy section through the valley and back to the layby. Total distance around 10 miles, ascent about 3000 ft. It's tough going in places, so probably 7 hours or so.

    Cadair Idis isn't the highest mountain, but it is full of interest, and on a good day the views over the Mawddach estuary and the Rhinogs to the north are magnificent.
