A 2-day circuit of the eastern Arenigs from Llanuwchllyn to visit a couple of new 500m Dewey hills, a quick trip conceived at short notice with little planning required and some new landscape to explore. The outward route approaches through the forest of Y Lordship and the return is via Blaen Lliw and the bridleway traversing Ffridd Trawsgoed.
The clarity was excellent on the first day giving pin-sharp landscapes and distant clear views, culminating in a superb night at Moel Llyfnant, the third time I’ve pitched here. A haze developed overnight and the light breeze died completely by dawn, prompting a very swift striking of camp to mitigate a midge onslaught and a fast return to base. The area was deserted for the whole trek.
