Sunday 21st April 2019 - Rhinogydd

     Starting at SH684302 at about 09:45 (having left the Abbey at 8:00), we will head into the Bwlch Drws Ardudwy and then steeply up onto Rhinog Fach. Then there's a pleasant descent past Llyn Hywel and back into the Bwlch before a tough and rocky ascent to Rhinog Fawr, returning via Llyn Du.

    The Rhinogydd are rough and quiet hills, not often visited; and the route I've selected is a rocky, scrambly one. For this reason, it's been regraded as an 'A' walk: there's no technically difficult or especially exposed scrambling, but it is hands-on at times, and I'd suggest strong boots. The reward for all this effort should be magnificent views out to Cardigan Bay and a terrain full of interest. The distance is roughly 10 miles with about 3000 feet of climbing. It will probably take around 7-8 hours to do.
