Guided Walk, Sat 14 Sep 2019

Southern Snowdonia,
LL39 1AX

Details

Today's walk follows the Pony Path, the main route to the summit of Cadair Idris from the Dolgellau side and which offers the most rewarding views. Gentle stretches alternating with steep ascents eventually take us to the bleak terrain of frost-shattered rock on the summit, Penygadair. Here we will rest and enjoy the views or shelter in the refuge close to the summit cairn. The return is by the same route.

A 6 mile Grade C (Hard) Walk, ascent 2400ft/730m, taking about 6 hours.
Meet at Y Talbot 09:00 or Ty Nant car park near Dolgellau (SH 697153) at 10:45.
