Cliffs, fearless sheep and bog holes
by Colin Murphy  11 Feb 2013
There is a parking spot for a couple of cars beside the road at G860 507 B. Directly opposite this is a short stony track that rises north towards the impressive cliffs on Conwal North's western side. Proceed up the track for about 100m until you see a steep, grassy gully intersecting the cliff face, running SE. This is very firm underfoot and relatively easy to climb, and when you get to the top you'll have most of your climbing already done. At G862 508 C turn NEE and continue directly towards the summit for 1km across heathery terrain, although fairly easy going and firm underfoot. However, be warned, there is a low, deceptively marshy bit just before the top, which you should circumnavigate. If only I'd known this beforehand, that is before I sank, literally up to my chest in soft mud. It took me several minutes to extract myself - I had to claw my way out - and it made the remainder of my walk very unpleasant. The unremarkable top itself is marked by a handful of stones topped by a sheep's skull! Like madfrankie, I encountered a flock of remarkably tame sheep, who approached to within 3 metres and virtually surrounded me while I was standing at the top. The entire journey there and back took one hour, although I spent 10 minutes of that scraping handfuls of mud from my clothes... Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/731/comment/14920/
