From Craig Fach. Returned to the Pyg Track, headed west for 200m, then worked my way down between crags to meet the Miners' Track where it crosses Llyn Llydaw. Followed it east, then crossed the bogs west of Llyn Teyrn (would usually have been very wet, but not today) and climbed the west ridge to the summit. Then returned the same way to rejoin the Miners' Track to Pen y pass. Solo.Man of Kernow110/07/2018
Detour from the Miners' Track to Snowdon via Gribyn ridge. A bit squelchy around the lake but a fine, airy view on the top. Worth an extra 15 minutes walk.Jake99402/06/2018

First bit of climb up from Afon Glaslyn was pretty hard going after a long day round the horseshoe, but after reaching Llyn Teryn height it levelled out. Decent view back. On reaching Miners' Track some startled elderly Germans said it looked like I'd climbed out the ground.agentmancuso15/07/2015
Bagged on a walk from Llanberis to Pen y Pass, via Llechog, Crib y Ddysgl, Yr Wyddfa, Y Lliwedd, Y Lliwedd East Top and Lliwedd Bach. A bit boggy underfoot but an easy detour off the Miner's Track.Sprog23/05/2015
