What the start looked like in October 2012 - a simple metal kissing-gate

The start today - an elaborate wall and gate - no expense spared!

Ready for off at 9 a.m.

A rather expensive new bridge over the marshy bit

Quite misty on the top

Low visibility on the top

At last, after Garnedd Goch, the mist cleared and we could see Llyn Cwm Dulyn. We followed the
wall down from Garnedd Goch to the "hole-in-the-wall", from where we were able to head NW
on a path that contoured the hill towards Llyn Cwm Dulyn.
