SH7477 : Rhyolite crags

taken 7 years ago, near to Capelulo, Conwy, Great Britain

Rhyolite crags
Rhyolite crags
Spectacular cliffs formed in rhyolite at the head of the dry valley (sych-nant) were formed by melt-water flowing through the channel which forms the green fields just to the left of this image; SH7577 : Glacial melt-water channel. A number of meltwater-channels cross the headland from East to West, see SH7477 : Green enclosurefor another example. Water flowing towards the coast is supposed to have been impounded by stagnant ice in the Irish Sea and escaped parallel to the coast. This track forms part of the North Wales LDP.
