Cnicht and Bwlch y Battel from Gelli Iago

An alternative route up one of the iconic Welsh hills. You approach via the pleasant Cwm Gelli Iago, towards the unassuming western faceof Cnicht and wonder what the fuss is all about.

However, on passing through a quiet valley with it’s tarn, this route brings you to the south of the hill and an approach along the more recognisable path from Croesor.

The original walk we linked to has broken – so we’ll be looking to update this route soon.
