Rhobell Fawr (Day 3)

Today's forecast was for clearer weather but high winds especially near the coast. The high tops were again off limits but The Navigator thought a good compromise would be Rhobell Fawr,  a top I had often glimpsed on the way to Bala.


We parked the car in the woodlands near Fridd Carmel and walked east to the junction of the green dotted lane.

We stayed on this path all the way until we cut uphill following a wall near Graig Fach. The contour lines tell their own  tale!

At the trig point it was difficult to stand up in the strong wind and we realised that  the "bigger hills" would have been impossible.  Well done to The Navigator".

We followed the wall which leads south west past Ffynnon Shon and onto another green dotted lane back to the car.

This area looks ripe for exploration when longer daylight hours are available with Rhobell Ganol and Rhobell-y- Big to be walked.

We had an interesting scenic route back to Trawsfynydd, which I am sure The Navigator meant us to take and took in the well known bustling hamlet of Abergeirw. Despite there being about only two farms there is a community centre!
