  1. You seem to have been very unlucky with the weather on your September walk, especially as most of the rest of the month was fine! I usually start my Moelwyns walks at Tanygrisiau. You can park at the end of the track that leads up to the dam, the car park by the cafe, or leave the car in Blaenau Ffestiniog. I have camped on the summit of Moelwyn Mawr a few times. However, you need to have a good forecast. The last time I camped there, I had to pack up at 2:00am in a thunderstorm, the wind was collapsing the tent poles.

    There are some good camping spots between the two Moelwyn peaks and as you already know, a bit further away by the small tarns.


  2. The weather might have been fine in Wales, but six days after returning home to Middlesex my house was flooded in an exceptional rainstorm! But you did say “most” of for the rest of the month.
    I know the way from Tanygrisiau that you describe, I set off the same way in September 2014, though most of the route I followed was to the east of Blaenau Ffestiniog.
