Wherever possible we try to factor in a half day walk on our route to base camp and today was no exception.
We met up with Andy who had travelled down from Chester , at the car park near the junction of the A470 and A493 just west of Dolgellau.
We walked along the Mawddach Trail and crossed the Afon Mawddach at the toll bridge paying the princely sum of 20 pence each.
If you refer to the link of the route you will see we headed north and then east to Foel Ispri and then onto part of the New Precipice Walk. There were excellent views on this route north to the Rhinogydd range, south to Cadair Idris, west to the sea at Barmouth and east to the Arrans.
We wandered back via Llyn Tan-y-Graig and Llanelltyd.
