From Rhyd y Bod. Took the footpath behind Talardd up Moel Maes y llech, leaving it to climb steeply to the summit. Then headed down to the bwlch and into Coed T'yn y fedw, leaving it for a sitka-thrash to open ground. Then a hike via Bwlch y Pawl to the summit. Returned much the same way, though took the forest track all the way down to the road near Ty'n y fedw. Solo. Cold, but sunny, with cloud increasing later.

Pheasants, and a buzzard.
