An attempt on Cnicht from the west, thwarted by the rain and gales; still a good (if very wet) walk up to the high pass and lake of Bwlch y Battel.
Then a compensatory climb of a 'miniature' (263m) mountain in Moel y Gest. Very good walk up to and along the rocky and undulating summit ridge.
This board helps you to share your walking route experiences in England and Wales... or overseas.
Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
