From Nantgwynant via Watkin's Path. Onwards to Snowdon summit. Descend from Snowdon via south ridge and climbed to summit of Yr Aran. Return via path making a descending traverse north of the east ridge, pausing to look at disused mine workings (marked) from which old mining tramways were used to return to the valley bottom and return to the starting point.

Round of Yr Aran, Snowdon and Y Lliwedd from Bethania CP. Looks intimidating from Snowdon and is rather craggy and stony but following some helpful cairns avoids any serious scrambling.Topographer5701/08/2019

Snowdon horseshoe with the kids - great!nix_snilloc20/10/2016
From Snowdon summit via Watkin path which was very poor and loose stones at first , improving greatly til I forked up the enjoyable, long ascent of Y Lliwedd. Quite a face on it! Clear since leaving Snowdon summit and views even better. Dry all day. Met another two couples and one chap on this section of day, so very quiet.niallp30/09/2016

Holiday to Wales needed a trip up Snowdon. As rumorsed, parking at Pen-Y-Pass was a nightmare, so parked 1km away to add on the the walk. Started out sunny, and went up the Pyg Track. The weather held out until Glaslyn, then we were in the clouds all the way to the top. Since we could only see about 10m infront, the train was a bit of a shock! After a quick warm up in the cafe up top, we then carried on along the ridge to Y Lliwedd, it looked like something out of LOTR! After this we dropped down to join the Miner's Track, passing some of the disused mines and eventually back at the car to find a very unwanted parking ticket! The drive back to the caravan included a must visit to Porthmadog. 5hr 30mins: 15km; 1480mByronHaywood25/06/2016

Super extended horseshoe route- it's been ten years since I last did it and I'd forgotten how much fun it is, especially Crib Goch. Route from Pen-y-Pass: Crib goch, Crib y Ddysgl, Yr Wyddfa, Y Lliwedd, Y Liwedd East Top, Lliwedd Bach & Gallt Y Wenallt, then a yomp back across the valley to pick up the Miners' path near the car park. And all on a four hour parking fee...though I was a bit late getting back...Cas-gwent24/05/2016
