Y Gamriw from Llanwrthwl

The shortest of the three ‘mountains’ in the Elenydd region of the Cambrian Mountains that hit the magical 600m contour, though providing no less challenge or remoteness.

Starting from the village of Llanwrthwl, this path crosses the National Trust’s Abergwesyn Commons and is not an easy clear path all the way! Navigational skills not optional.
