Round of Carnedd Llewelyn, Pen yr Helgi Du, Pen Lithrig Wrach and Craigiau Gleision from Gwern Goch Isaf. From 415m bridge, west face up onto 600m ridge, trackless pathless and wet at first but gets better on grass higher up. Pick up path up ridge to rocky summit. From bridge, route back to car was mostly on bank above water channel, marked ROW looked wet and muddy.Topographer5724/08/2019

From Llyn Crafnant car park. Track along short then up nice path to exit woods. Mistake to follow rough path along forest edge as end in heather thrash to pick up ridge path. Stay with path even though detours away to start. Fine viewsN.Morters07/04/2019

Used CP near Joe Brown shop, Capel Curig - walked by A5 to start of track just past Bron Heulog - eventually made a grassy ascent (using faint tracks here & there), to a little way S of rocky summit. Pleasant summit.ger17/07/2018

12 mile walk from Capel Curig starting in sunshine, followed road then up boggy path to water channel, followed water channel to foot of Y Braich ridge and climbed to Pen Yr Helgi Du, the weather was still good by this time but the Glyders went into cloud, descended and steeply ascended onto Pen Llithrig Y Wrach, descended to end of reservoir and ascended pathless slopes onto Creigiau Gleison, by this time the weather had took a turn for the worst, we nearly went into cloud. Followed rough path onto Craiglwyn, then climbed up Craig Wen and Crimpiau, by this time every hill we had done earlier went into cloud, descended to Capel Curig. Great but strenuous walk, if we had started an hour later all the walk would have probably been in cloud!DanTrig09/04/2017

Started Tal-y-Braich track end. Up to and along leat. Bogfest of a rough slog to Bwlch y Tri Marchog, lovely firmness to Pen Llithrig y Wrach. Lost path on way down to reservoir. Over bridge and rough slog up to Creigiau Gleision. Marginally different line on descent found lots of useful trods. Down to Capel Curig.
