Felt obliged not to bypass this though that is easily done, and glad to have the last ascent done. Though a little smaller, very much similar to main Y Lliwedd peaks.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
