Boggy Top
by Aidy  10 Apr 2016
Reached from Crockfadda NE Top, which was a short walk, but over difficult ground in places. Very boggy with a lot of tussocky grass. To get back down to the R254 I headed east to near point B from previous comments, made the steep descent beside the waterfall, and had an easy walk from there to the road.
