Story by PC from Rhos on Sea, United Kingdom, submitted on 06/02/2016
I climbed Bwlch y Groes en route between Rhos on Sea and Abergynolwyn on a sunny Saturday in May. There are a few undulations in the lower part of the climb, but once the ascent starts in earnest, it is steady. The situation soon becomes amazing as the road traverses the steep side of the cwm on its way to the car park at the top. From there, the view to the north is amazing, weather permitting!

Signs warn about the severity of the descent to Llanymawddy, but nothing prepares for the actuality. Relentlessly steep. I stopped a few times to allow my rims to cool, and admire the view. The valley to the south of the col is beautiful, remote and very peaceful.

Story by DC from Tunbridge Wells, United Kingdom, submitted on 28/09/2014
Climbed from Llanuwchllyn on a sunny Sunday afternoon, it was peaceful traffic-wise, but tough once the real climb starts. Thoroughly enjoyable, but nothing compared to the hair-raising descent to Lake Vymwry just after the summit.
