madfrankie on Conwal North
by madfrankie 23 Feb 2009
Look at the photo attached and you're likely to think 'that's not much of a summit'. And you'd be right. Conwal North is little more than a rising moorland outlier of Arroo, in the Northern Dartrys. Having said that, it has lovely views, with the distinctive prow of Arroo westwards, and Lough Melvin below to the north.
Travelling from Kinlough, take the Rossinver road, turning off on a minor road that ascends to a col. Park at A (G860 508) where there's place to park. Ominous cliffs loom above the road, but walk for a few minutes SE and these gradually dissipate. An easy half hour tramp across undulating moors will bring you to the unmarked summit, or rather the highest point on the plateau.
We were joined there by a flock of curious sheep (most unusual; I've never known sheep to evince anything other than complete disinterest or panic-stricken alarm), who then followed us half-way back to the car. Linkback:

Picture: Impressive western cliff face
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 B (G860 507). 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 C (G862 508) 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... Linkback:
