7.5 hour circuit taking in Moel Druman and Cnicht from around (698 484) just north of Blaenau Ffestiniog. James dropped me off on his way to work at Zip World. Around 20km with much long grass and boggy ground - via Llyn Iwerddon, Moel Druman, Llyn yr Adar, Llyn y Biswail, Bwlch y Battel, round to the bwlch at (639 460), nice scrambly ascent of Cnicht, Llyn Cwm-corsiog, very interesting and extensive disused quarry, down the track to Tanygrisiau and up the road to Zip World at Llechwedd Caverns. Nav was fine in good visibility but I still did a lot of map checking to make sure I knew where I was and relate features to the map.
