Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2014


Minffordd route....Tal Y Llyn lake is beautiful, such a rich dark blue....back down in time for cream tea at the Visitor's Center tea room----their scones are scrumptious! Weather was fantastic so we had the most incredible views.

Been up Cadair many times, best route uo Cyfrwy Arete then a quick amble to the summit! just misses out on being a 3,000ft peak, would make it interesting for the 14 peaks then :)

daveyboyAgain a great day:  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 27, 2008


I dont know what it is but most times I have done this summit the best of weather has always been there for me.
Did the complete horseshoe via Craig y Cau with sunshine all day except for amazing cloud formations blowing over the ridge in banks late in the day. These were very unusual as the cloud was blowing in from the north hitting the ridge and then going back in on themselves. Must of been an effect on thermals...?

RatballsMy first climbing experience  Sucess!


Went with my three best mates from high school--Bog, Mill, and Piotr--during my first summer break from uni. I remember we hiked in some many miles, camped illegally in the woods, drank a lot of beer, washed in streams... but of the climb itself, I remember a lake, what I would now describe as a couloir, and a windy summit packed with other hikers. I wonder what they're all doing now--my high school mates, that is, not the random hikers on the summit.

I climbed this many years ago as a scout. We camped in our bright orange force 10 tents next to the lake. Brilliant weekend away.

After a night navigation exercise and an overnight bivvy at Llyn Arran, us pupils follwed our leader Hugo up the nothern slopes to the summit shelter where we stopped for a brew-up. Unfortunately the clouds were down so I've no idea what the view is like.

I love this mountain, I've lost count of the number of times I've climbed it or slept on it's summit.

Nigel LewisThanks to dad!  Sucess!

Nigel Lewis

As child my father had always taken his holidays below the mountain but had never been up it. I was delighted to take him and his friend via the foxes path to spend some time on the summit.
I've also been up via the Cyfrwy Arrete, much more fun!!

twsStandard circular route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 6, 2006


Did the whole horseshoe starting from Minffordd. Really bad weather plus on the summit it turned really crazy, for me it was probably the first time to experience raining sideways. Sitting in the shelter with the howling winds I think I got the picture why people used to believe that this place was haunted.

Unbelievably hot day, made all the worse for my climbing partner Stu as he was suffering with a hang over. Great scrambling and brilliant coastal views. Fine leisurly day.

Like everyone else who's signed this log I went up this mountain a long time ago (when the surrounding area was "dry" on Sundays!) with my mate Ged. We still climb together in N Wales as well as the Alps and Nepal.

This was my first ever mountain, at age 2, or so I'm told. It's a grand hill, with plenty of good climbing. Cyfrwy Arete is a very worthwhile easy rock route

By far my most favourite Mountain,it can be an easy jaunt up in summer or a struggle and a fight in heavy rain and snow,it stands very proud and large in Mid Wales and is never over crowded.
