  Walking up Pumlumon mountain: introduction
Pumlumon (pronounced "Pimlimmon", and sometimes anglicised to "Plynlimon") is a massif rather than a single summit.
Its highest point, and the highest point in the Cambrian Mountains, is Pen Pumlumon Fawr (2468 feet or 752 metres).
The route to Pen Pumlumon Fawr from Eisteddfa Gurig (at the highest point of the A44 road) is awful.

This "compact" bunkhouse really was in the middle of nowhere, on the shores of Nant y Moch reservoir, 360m up Pumlumon, and some distance from the electricity supply (there were gas lights and heaters.
But Sarah, Clare and Hazel were enjoying themselves so much that after Pumlumon they went on up another hill on the other side of the valley while I headed for an afternoon nap.
Saturday evening was the highlight of the weekend as most people stayed in the bunkhouse to display an impressive variety of gourmet cooking, with Wayne's chicken in stilton sauce with steamed vegetables and summer fruit pudding with amaretto biscuits the piece de resistance.

CPRW argues that the adverse visual impact of the project has been understated by the applicants' Environmental Assessment and the proposal, which contravenes all the relevant planning policies, is inconsistent with government policy which requires it to be 'environmentally acceptable'.
In addition there are government subsidised generating contracts adjacent to the site, and at Y Foel on the opposite side of the Wye Valley which could produce a further 40 turbines of the same size, or pro rata.
Also visible from the tops of Pumlumon are Llandinam (103 x 45m), Carno (56 x 53m) and Cemaes (24 x 41m), between which a further 75 turbines of 59-76m are waiting for Public Inquiry decisions, and 23 x 77m are in the planning process.

This is shown to be particularly true of the lluestau of the Pumlumon area in north Ceredigion.
Amendments made to the SMR database structure as a result of the 2001-2002 assessment project meant that these visits were able to record accurate information regarding the characteristics and landscape context of the sites visited, as well as assess threats and make scheduling recommendations where appropriate.
Such remote settlement sites on the open common may be medieval hafotai as their location is markedly different to those of the post-medieval lluestau of the regin, which are usually found in sheltered valley locations.

The ceremony marks the end of the re-building of the halls which were totally destroyed by fire on Wednesday 4 November 1998, leaving 108 students in need of re-housing and with little more than the clothes they stood in.

Plynlimon (Pumlumon in Welsh, pronounced "Pimlimmon") is a massif rather than a single summit.
From Plynlimon's rounded summit ridges can be seen most of the mountains of Wales, from the Brecon Beacons to Snowdon; and the great sweep of Cardigan Bay, from Strumble Head to Bardsey island.
The broad ridge from Y Garn via Pumlumon Fawr, Pumlumon Arwystli, to Carnfachbugeilyn is an exhilarating walk, and passes close to the sources of the Rheidol, Wye and Severn.

From Plynlimon's summit ridges can be seen most of the mountains of Wales, from the Brecon Beacons to Snowdon; and the great sweep of Cardigan Bay, from Strumble Head to Bardsey island.
Another ascent route well worth avoiding is from Hafren forest in the east - unless of course you would enjoy miles of monotonous walking through conifer forest before you escape onto the open mountain.
Much of the land on this side is Crown Common, so you don't have to keep to the public rights of way, and there is practically a free choice of route to the high ground.

Munro-baggers are well-known in Scotland: they are people who have an ambition to climb every one of the 3000 foot summits of Scotland.
Most of the Welsh 2000 foot summits are in Snowdonia, and the Brecon Beacons National Park also boasts a good number.
But Mid Wales makes an interesting contribution, in the form of Plynlimon (Pumlumon), Pen y Garn, Drygarn and Gorllwyn, and Radnor Forest.

As the route climbs steeply up through some very rugged and wet terrain, gaining fully 300 metres in height above the level of the car park (and a further 100m to the summit of Pen Pumlumon), it is recommended that good walking boots are worn, and a sweater and waterproof carried.
The weather on Pumlumon can be changeable, so it is always a good idea to let friends know that you are tackling the walk.
