Walk: Conwy town walls, Marina, Castell Caer Leion, Penmaen-Bach, Allt-Wen, Sychnant Pass, Stone circle, Mount Pleasant
Start Point: Conwy Grid Reference: SH 781 774
Distance: 10 miles Ascent: 1,500 feet
Time: 6 hours    
Weather: A warm sunny day with a slight breeze on the summits
Comments: Sixteen walkers were well rewarded with superb weather and wonderful views. The walk had a hesitant start due to the leader being unable to find his way out of the station. However, once this obstacle was overcome a very enjoyable day was had by all.
