Tal Y Fan from Pen y Sychnant

Another steady plod to the northernmost Welsh mountain. This is a pleasant enough route that’s almost an out and back, but with so many parallel tracks in the area you’ll find it’s easy enough to take a different return route. The images were taken during some particularly deep snow and was much harder to follow than the …

Fan Brycheiniog and Picws Du Walk

Until recently, the peaks of the Western Beacons, also known as the Carmarthenshire Fans, or locally as the Black Mountain/Mynydd Du (not to be confused with the Black Mountains in the East of the Brecon Beacons National Park), were way off the beaten track, known only to the few solace seeking walkers who enjoyed having …

All the Routes up Tryfan

Tryfan is one of the most iconic mountains in the UK, certainly in Wales. It just looks like a mountain from every direction, without a single easy approach available! At 917m high, it’s just one of the main 15 Peaks, and when recently re-measured it was feared it would lose that status. Thankfully, they discovered …

Climbing Tryfan, for it’s more a climb than a …

Rhinogydd from Llandecwyn to Talybont

The Rhinogydd, despite their difficulty, are reasonably accessible from many points. Trawsfynydd to the north east has always been a favourite starting point, but an arguably more scenic approach is from the opposite side of the mountain at Llandecwyn.  It has the advantage of a return via the Cambrian Line Railway. OS Map Required Explorer 018, Landranger 124, BMC …
