Foel y Geifr and Foel Goch

A pleasant enough morning's walk, before the weather broke. There are some excellent views to be had of the Arans from the summit ridge and the summit trig point of Foel y Geifr is a good landmark. We almost walked past the summit of Foel Goch, so nondescript is it, although there are a few stones marking the top. A point further along the ridge looks as if it might be higher, but the map and GPS suggest otherwise.
