Using Bryn Hafod

Our Background

Photo 29-03-2018^J 19 58 26.jpg

Situated at the head of Cwm Cywarch in the Aran Mountains, an area of unspoilt climbing and walking, visitors to Bryn Hafod will not be bored! Climbing in the area is detailed in the Meirionnydd Guide published by The Climbers’ Club.


Craig Cywarch (pictured) with 70+ ‘trad’ routes ranging from M to E7 is very accessible from Bryn Hafod. Over the last few years, numerous routes have been cleaned of vegetation making them easier to find and climb safely.


There is plenty of walking from the doorstep, including paths to the top of Aran Fawddwy and the Ridge walk. MTB trails and the coast are nearby. Further information can be found on the Club website, and copies of local guides are held at Bryn Hafod.
