Bwlch y Groes ...Pass of the Cross
Bwlch y Groes ...Pass of the Cross
A beautiful April day in North Wales.
Bwlch y Groes or Pass of the Cross.
It is one of the highest public road mountain passes in Wales.
This is the junction of the roads from Vyrnwy, Llanuwchllyn and Dinas Mawddwy where the cross commemorates the place of the pass on a pilgrim route from north Wales.
Bwlch y Groes is also known as the Hellfire Pass and - due to the steep gradient - was used at one time to test the performance of prototype cars; also as a challenging climb in the round-Britain cycle race.
