Re: Berwyns: Foel Cwm-Sian Llwyd

I could sum that walk up in one word, but decency stops me form doing so!

I went up FCSL on a very windy, wet day in November about 4 years ago with my (at the time) 5 year old son. He still hasn't forgiven me :lol:

One to go up once and once only!

Re: Dyfi Hills (the cheats method!)

Cheers PR - I think it was one of your reports that put me off the walk up the A470 in the first place! BTW 'Vertical' spongy moss is a very underrated substrate! :lol: Now I'm nearing my Welsh hewitt completion, I must thank you as one of a few who have documented the 'less popular' hills on Walkhi...

Dyfi Hills (the cheats method!)

Today was yet another one of those days where I picked up some of those stragglers on the mission to complete all of the Hewitts that Wales had to offer. Reading up on the reports, I decided that a massive cheat would be required to avoid the 3 mile walk back along a very busy and narrow A470 so I m...

Re: Getting High on Low Fell

JKLL - the way you get perfect photos from any conditions consistently amazes me.

Whilst I've only been actively posting for a couple of months, I must have been though all your reports now. Hill and mountain photography at it's best.

Re: Making the peat hags attractive around Weardale

If someone asks me what crosses the line of being a fun day in the hills to absolute masochism I'll remember the line "20 mile-plus walk which would be mostly pathless, and mostly over peat bog" :lol:

Fair play and great report! (Love the icicles picture!)

Re: The Tundra - South Wales style

Chuck the 'part 2' in as part of the Waun Fach horseshoe and (ground conditions notwithstanding) it's a nice simple way to stay above 2000 foot for 10+ miles!

Certainly refreshing today though! :lol:

The Tundra - South Wales style

aka The Beast From the East vs The Pest From the West (Midlands) I was looking at my South Wales remaining Hewitts and wondered which ones to do on a half day excursion in what promised to be rather 'Polar' conditions. MWIS promised windchill in excess of -20C so remembering the struggle I had in th...

Re: Moel Siabod disappoints

Surprising report this one Pensioner. I walked up MS via the Daear Ddu ridge with my 7 year old son and whilst it's not Aonach Eagach it's a fun scramble from start to the fell top finish. The descent along the ridge instead of the tourist path is great fun too, whilst not taxing. I hope you can fin...

I'm proud to say that I managed the 20 odd foot of reclimb to the majestic top of Foel Boeth! The Nuttalls classification does make me chuckle... :lol:

Moel Llyfnant and Gallt y Daren

On the quest to complete all the Hewitts in North Wales, today was one of those days where needs must and a couple of the less glamorous 'peaks' had to be tackled. Using a modified version of Greenman's route from this very site, I decided I would attack the the lesser Arenigs to the west of Arenig ...
