As forecast the weather was a bit naff today. We had intended to take in eight tops, but decided on completing Moelwyn Bach at 710m to turn back. It took us about half an hour just to find the summit cairn – and that was with the help of a GPS and countless nuttalls books. I did enjoy the walk, but didn’t feel particularly well, and struggled more than normal with the ascent. I also got absolutely drenched, and sat on the coach home with saturated boxer shorts. I should have gone commando really! There are tons of pictures of Andy, as he winged that there was only one of the top of his sack on Blencathra.
The route went from Tanygrisiau, and along the track to the power station on the shore of the reservoir. We couldn’t get any further along the path, so we cut up alongside a stream and headed up to Llyn Stwlan, which interestingly enough sounds like a Nazi concentration camp. We took Moelwyn Back from the East, we dropped down on a path to the col between the two Moelwyns (north), and descended once more to Llyn Stwlan. This time we walked along the dam, dropping down on to a tarmac track which we followed back to the village.
