Here are some photos of Pistyll Y Llyn from Saturday 10th Jan 09, yes, this year. This does look a very good outing. Its approx 500ft long and gives upto 5 pitches. The left hand branch is III and the righty hand branch maybe a little harder. Its not in the guide, but is located south of Machynlleth and can be seen from road SE of Glaspwll.
Tim Sparrow apparently did the first ascent of the right hand line over 20 years ago.
Shown below are photos of the falls. Thanks for Gary Morgan and Rob Watt, who is who on the pictures I am not sure.
Back to Cwm Idwal. There is a line( which is not in the guide ) to the left of the Sting. However, it must have been done before. It gives a good pitch of 4-5 and has rock gear near the top. Thanks for Rory for the pictures ( 9th Jan 09 )
Picture of where this line is to be found
