Esgair Irfon

Cist

Esgair Irfon (Cist) by GLADMAN The exquisite Irfon Valley... aka Abergwesyn Pass. Esgair Irfon forms the craggy right hand flank. Travellers seeking the cist within its little cairn will finding parking in a layby beside a NT information 'boulder'; head very steeply uphill and trend north at the crest of the ridge... the monument is set back from the escarpment edge.

Funnily enough I attempted to spend a night below to the left some time back - 1999, I think - without sleeping bag. Had to retreat back to the car with the onset of hypothermia, experiment a dismal failure. Had no idea there was a cairn above since only had the 1:50k map... GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN
