Long climb to summit
Short Summary created by Fergalh  30 Oct 2020
Cadair Idris is the highest mountain In wales to climb as you start from near Sea Level all the others you climb from over 100 metres or so. There are numerous track up this mountain and as it is a long way from Mount Snowdon the crowds are less. In the winter this is well known as a very cold mountain as it is exposed to the sea so dress warmly ! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B2137/comment/8125/

Long Climb in snow and Ice but worth it
by Fergalh  30 Oct 2020
Long steep and Icy climb up North and than North East from Craig Cwm Amarach. Eventually you arrive at summit and the trig pillar and the survival hut just below can be seen. It was extremly Icy when were there but a fantastic Hill to climb Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B2137/comment/21161/
