Track right to summit
by Fergalh  7 Feb 2021
After Allt y Derw follow track in a northerly direction until you reach forest. On the OS Map the track just runs around the bottom of the peak. Fortunately there is a track that leads right to the summit so no push through ! Linkback:

Tricky Pronounciation

Normally when an OS map has missing tracks in a forest, it leads to a problem in finding the summit this is one of the exceptions Linkback:
