Anyone who read the first Sygyn route, may be aware I suggested an alternative route to these hills. Well, simply put, that’s what this is. I decided I wanted to see what the ascent from Cwm Bychan was like, as the direct ascent from Beddgelert was far too steep and overgrown with rhododendrons when I did this walk back in 2005. This is certainly a superior route to the first one.
