The ascent of Sugar Loaf (or 'Y Fal' to give it it's local name) is exponential in many ways. As the views increase in splendour with height, so does the severity of the slopes that guard this fortress of a hill. This route takes in some of the quieter routes around the hill, avoiding the busier areas in the vicinity of nearby car parks. The effort of arriving independent or automobile is well rewarded by hidden beauty in peaceful corners.
