Best Guidebook Walks 3 – Rhinogydd Details
This is Steve Ashton’s Walk across the Rhinogydd from our article on My Favourite Guidebook Walks.
Ashton does, admittedly, do them the easy way. He starts off in Cwm Bychan and then follows the entire ridge to Abermaw (Barmouth). While the walk is well described, there is the issue of returning to the start. Ashton also loses marks for not starting off the route by traversing the badlands between Rhinog Fawr and Moel Ysgyfarnogod.
Though starting from Cwm Bychan and turning left for the badlands as opposed to right for the not-Roman Steps is rather masochistic.
