Sticky toffee pudding, mmmmm!

Tim Buckley climbed Waun Fach on September 28th, 2014 [from/via/route] po153 Pen Cerrig-Calch from Neuadd-Fawr, north of Llambdr. 13.5 miles oh boy at 20 degrees this was hard going [with] Solo walk, set off at 8.30am arrived here at 12.40pm [weather] As I said 20 degrees - excellant visibility - For large parts of the walk, looking ahead thought Pen y Gadiar was Waun Fach! When I realised it wasn't - it was a bonus to be further around the horse-shoe than I thought. The previous months have been very dry so not a boggy as it might have been but trail bikes have trashed the place-shame.
