ML navigation practice in thick fog. Went from Coed Caedafydd parking area. 'Handrailed' fence up 623468. North 100m to hut at 624468. NE88 400m to gulley. Directly South 100m to Llyn yr Arddu 629466 90 degrees NE 150m to small lake. 100m E to large plateau area. 200m SE110 degrees to building/wall at 634466 - Found a drystone bivvy marked as 'cave' on OS map. 250m NE85 degrees to South tip of lake at 636467. Pacing to obvious ridge at 637647. Taken directly for 350m to 639468. 150m 133 degreeSE to ring contour at 641457. 100m E to obvious plateau area. Took bearing from map on summit at E101 degrees and navigated around steep rocky section. Return: very dark. Took bearing W268 degrees to Llyn yr Arddu. Did 'macro nav' finding line of least resistance around bearing taken. Once at Llyn yr Arddu we handrailed the stream down a rocky gulley for 400m until we hit the plantation and drystone wall at 624467. Very steep through bracken with hidden drops and boulder-would not do again-better to head west through flatter area then drop back down East. Once at plantation, where stream intersects wall, took bearing on carpark at 285 degrees West. Very sketchy through the plantation! No obvious path so glad to have the bearing taken in full on 'Blair Witch' territory! NB-New to navigation so may have done all grid refs and bearings totally wrong!

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.
