Afon Ddu Gorge Walk/Scramble alternatives

Post by stone056 »

Hello all,

does anyone now of any decent alternatives to the Afon Ddu for gorge walking?

I have done one somewhere near the horseshoe pass near Llangollen but i was just a 'passenger' and didn't take much notice of where it was.

any help appreciated

Are you thinking of the Nant y Ffrith in Bwlchgwyn?

Yes that could be the one, I will have a scout next time I am up there

what about the Trystion? near Cynwyd?

Also i have heard that PYB are not using the Afon Ddu anymore but using one next to it, they wouldn't let on which this was though

Thanks for your help

There is a great guide called "Scrambles in Snowdonia';
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Scrambles-Snowd ... 1852840889
that lists enough outings for years worth of 'too low to paddle anything' trips.

The black ladders on the Carneddau is worth an outing.

You're right - it's easy to spot fake Welsh as it never has enough 'f's in it!
