Ascent Trip Report

“Bare Hill of the Hare”. Easy parking at the eastern end of the minor road east of Eisingrug near Talsarnau. Combined with an ascent of the adjacent Foel Penolau, both very shapely hills in a marvellous setting of the wild northern Rhinogs. Walk 9.2 in the Nuttalls book except we did it in reverse because we tend to prefer steep ascents and more gentle descents. A mistake I think because the graded miners track skirting the south of Moel Ysgyfarnogod makes a better route in both directions (I sometimes feel the Nuttalls avoid ‘there-and-back’ routes purely on principle rather than on merit).
