After the summit excesses of the first day the route settles into a more predictable routine for the rest of the week, with the focus being on making efficient progress south whilst visiting just the major summits. The route passes through the Moelwyn’s, which in contrast to their more popular northern neighbours is more quiet and it is often possible to walk for hours without seeing anyone here. Thereafter the mighty Rhinog’s are the next major obstacle and their reputation for very tough terrain and slow going is truly justified.
Please note that the overnight campsite at Vanner Farm is on private property and no public access is allowed.
