Garn Caws

Round Cairn


A short stroll from Pant Llwyd cairns (1.5.2010), this was too much of a draw to resist, despite being out of my intended way. A massive cairn, huge despite the concerted efforts of walkers to turn into a chalet or some such. As is often the case, it is not visible until you get to the southern Pant Llwyd cairns at around the 500m mark. It can however be seen from Chwar Blaenonneau, some way to the east.

Leaving here, I got back on my walk to Carreg Waun Llech, taking a direct and probably inadvisable route straight off the Garn Caws summit down the deep sided cwm to the south-east, then heading for the southern corner of Coed y Waun wood. This is rough, trackless countryside, strewn with scree and crossed by many little streams. From the corner of the wood, and again from the base of the rock band at Chwar Blaenonneau, Garn Caws is the most prominent man-made feature around.
