Ysceifiog to Moel Arthur 11th September 2010

I decided to miss out on the walk today and go down to the Exacta Stadium to watch Chester win 2 -0 against Garforth Town from Leeds.
Only Mike and Richard decided to walk.

Account provided by Richard.

Stats:Distance:12.8 miles; Climb:1644' (Total ascent/descent:3287').
Time:4 hours 24 minutes; On the move walking average:3.4 m.p.h.
Mike and I had a good walk despite odd outbreaks of showers. Temperature quite warm throughout the walk.
The route was Ysceifiog to Nannerch, to Summit of Moel Arthur, descent to parking spot at the bottom of Penyclodiau, contoured around lower route and had a hurried lunch as rain arrived, then continued around to cross Offas Dyke and descend down to cross A541, past nature reserve then right turn up hill back to Ysceifiog.
