Mynydd Sygyn from Beddgelert

A throbbing hangover is not a good start to a day on the hill, but sometimes you’re just determined to get up there. Mynydd Sygyn is an area that i’ve been looking at on the map for a while now, and it’s intriguing bit of low land between the Snowdon Massif and the boggier, less majestic Moelwynion. The highest point is Moel Y Dyniewyd at 382 m so it isn’t a seriously challenging climb, but it has to be the roughest terrain you can find at this level. The are is encompassed by the Glaslyn to the north and west, with Nantmor delineating the south, before the land rises again to similar terrain (Yr Arddu) and the heady heights of the Moelwynion themselves.
