Cadair Berwyn

Hurled in a forgotten corner of north Wales, the Berwyns are an oft-ignored gem just outside the National Park boundary. A high, rocky ridge links the more or less equal highest points of Cadair Berwyn and Moel Sych, and resembles a perfect transition between the bouldery summits of Snowdonia and the sweeping ridges of the Brecon Beacons.

Best route: the ridge begs to be tackled as one, and for the impressive frontage of the east face, head north from Tan y Pistyll any way you can, then at SJ080337 turn onto Cadair Berwyn’s north-east ridge.
