Walk 10 – Y Garn from Llanelltyd via Cwm Mynach

Max Height: 2,045ft.
Leader – Gwyneth Griffith
Total Height Ascended: 3,684ft
Y Garn stands alone, isolated from the main Rhinog ridge. The long ascent follows the grassy southern ridge rewarding us with far reaching views on a fine day. Initially descending over tussocky grass we return via the most delightful hidden valley of Cwm Mynach passing the remote cottage featured in the book ‘Four fields, five gates’. The final stretch follows the classic New Precipice walk with glorious estuary views.
The Chalice and Paten from Cymer Abbey were found about the year 1890 concealed under a stone here at Cwm Mynach obviously hidden after the dissolution of the Monasteries in 1536, said to be the most perfect examples of X11 century silver-gilt workmanship known and hidden for 350 years
