Blooming heck Tango, you definitely love getting amongst those Welsh hills. Another good factual report. Although I did notice that you started quite late. Were you waiting for the mist to clear from the mountains????

Looks interesting - any photos? Have done Cnicht and Ysgafell Wen umpteen times but never been up Allt Fawr yet, nor have I approached these hills from this direction.
