Dropped down to Gwern Got Isaf Campsie to finish. [weather] Very sunny day, great visibility. Some smatterings of hail lying to 3" in parts & some areas were icy. - If doing it again would drop off ridge from Gallt yr Ogof sooner as terrain was better slightly further left. Follow fence line to stile & then hug fence for some distance before descent to gate on old Roman Road.
