We start from the GROES INN and head S.W. on the lane and then west up paths which ascend through woods and moor to the ancient church of St Celynin.
We continue and then head S and SW to join the Roman Road. We soon leave this and head north to the summit of Tal-y-Fan.
We descend generally N across moors to join the North Wales Path which soon contours on a narrow path above Fairy Glen. We cross the Sychnant Pass Road and continue on the North Wales Path to Conwy.
On a good day we should get magnificent views. If the visibility is very poor I shall abandon this walk and go around/over Conway Mountain, Penmaer Bach and Altwen.
