GIST DDU


Gist Ddu is a line-up of ribs and corners embedded in the mountainside above the serene Llyn Lliwbran and is the hiding place of one of Wales great HVS mountain routes. Conquering the line of Aardvark requires good judgement of the conditions although access to the cliff is now much easier than it was in the recent past thanks to the opening of a direct path to Llyn Lliwbran. It is worth noting that the routes feel like a real adventure and require vegetation management skills.
