Cwm Nantcol and the Rhinogs
Into the wilderness today - the Rhinogs in South Snowdonia. If you want to get away from the crowds around Snowdon and the Glyders, or on Cader Idris, this is the place to go. The Rhinogs are a wild, rugged range of mountains to the east of Harlech. The terrain can be rough and boulder/heather- bound, and some basic map reading skills are needed. The scenery is fantastic, and you can often walk for miles without seeing a soul. We drove up to the farm at the top of Cwm Nantcol, then walked up to Bwlch Drws-Ardudwy - a remote and wild mountain pass between Rhinog Fawr and Rhinog Fach. We climbed up to near Llyn Hywel below the towering peak of Rhinog Fach - we didn't quite have the energy to scramble to the top of Rhinog Fach today - perhaps another day. We walked back down to the farm, then stopped at Morfa Dyffryn beach on the way home, to catch the sunset over the end of the Llyn Peninsula.
