170m. As the name suggests, this is the south ridge of Rhinog Fach. Start at the lowest point above the screes to the north of Llyn Hywel keeping closely to the crest. The route finishes just short of the summit.

Very wet approach, beautiful though.

Great situation and far from the crowds on a sunny bank holiday weekend.

Wonderful, grippy rock, few loose bits, lovely and quiet for a bank holiday weekend

Another sunny day out in the mountains away from the crowds on easter weekend. Walk in along flagstone path from Nant Col then round to Llyn Hywel to start the ridge above. Windier than yesterday but still sunny and grippy gritstone felt secure apart from one or 2 loose holds with nice exposure in the main crux pitch.

Alt leads with cormac. Did in 4 pitches but we missed the crux pitch. Too busy admiring the view and basking in the sunshine. What a great spot.

A bit broken and wandering, loose route. Lovely aspect though.
