NEW Conquering Cadair Idris (DF)

SKU Walk23


Ascent (Feet): 2876


This new route starts from the large Mach Loop plane spotters' layby at the top pf Bwlch Llyn Bach pass on the A487 between the Cross Foxes and Minffordd (Grid Ref SH 75365 13616). It takes us round the shoulder of Gau Graig to ascend the Cadair ridge on a little known path, which is easier than the traditional Cadair climbs, to reach the summit of Gau Graig. From there we traverse the full Cadair ridge with a sharp pull up Mynydd Moel before shortly reaching the glorious Cadair summit at Penygadair (2930 feet). We then retrace our route to Gau Graig descending across Mynydd Gwerngraig on a path which starts with a couple of tiny scrambles before opening to a grassy descent to the layby.
