About Me

Myrddyn has over 29 years of hill walking experience from scaling North Africa's highest mountain to trekking in Nepal and Peru. He's completed the Welsh 3000ft challenge in under 24 hours and has completed 16 rounds of the Welsh 2000ft mountains, including an ascent of each mountain in each month of the year; still the only known Monthly Calendar Round of Hills ever achieved in the mountains of the British Isles. He has surveyed over 420 hills in Wales using a basic levelling technique, and spent nine years as a member of the G&J Surveys team and has used Leica and Trimble differential GNSS equipment to survey the absolute height and drop of over 500 hills.  Myrddyn has a joy for Welsh upland place-name research and is the author and co-author of a number of hill lists including; Y Pedwarau, The Fours, Y Pellennig, Twmpau, The 500-Metre Tops of Ireland and The 400-Metre Tops of Ireland.  He is a member of the Legacy Committee set up to safeguard the entire hill-related papers, card index and memoir of the late E.D. 'Clem' Clements and is also an honorary life member of the Snowdonia Society.
