Crimea Pass, Allt-fawr, Moel Druman, Ysgafell Wen, Ysgafell Wen North Top, Ysgafell Wen Far North Top, Llyn Edno to Moel Meirch. Then back along ridge. Path all the way. Excellent views from ridge, so retracing steps is no hardship.Winterfloodian28/03/2019
Unseasonable fine weather finally over - low cloud coming & going - fog in valleys - some drizzle. Approached from P at Crimea Pass. Grassy path. Some local weather windows. A few blades of rock at summit area (one of which marks the summit). No cairn & no summit views(hill fog). Quite a pleasant atmospheric hill walk.ger28/02/2019

Another attempt from Crimea pass, this time successful. Intermittent light rain. Raced to the summit against descending clouds, result dead heat, although the clouds subsequently lifted intermittently.Topographer5713/09/2018
Parked at the Crimea Pass and headed up Allt Fawr and Moel Druman. I walked past Ysgafell Wen, despite Mark challenging me. We did the North Top and the Far North Top and then returned to it. Quite a long slog down, following the stream downhill. The river crossing at SH 6834 4952 was not easy and also there was a new barbed wire fence with no style which was a bit of a problem. The last mile and a bit on the track was easy.tsharp13/09/2018
A circular walk which included Moelwyn Mawr. Start point was the car parking area at SH683454.G4OBK (Phil)03/09/2018
From Crimea Pass. Up to ridge then followed ridge to Allt Fawr. Wet to start but improving so some fleeting views from summit. Returned same route. Solo.mike.hoult07/08/2018

First attempt from slate quarries abandoned after unfounded concern about safety of descending south ridge. Second attempt, from Crimea road pass, abandoned after concern that my tired calf muscles may not make it safely back by nightfall.Topographer5710/05/2018
Moel Dyrnogydd, Iwerddon, Allt Fawr, Craig Nyth-Y-Gigfran, Moel Druman, Ygafell Wen, Ysgafell Wen North Top, Ysgafell Wen far North top, Moel Meirch, Cerrig Cochion and yr Arddu. Parked at Crimea pass. Nice day to start although very cold, Turned wet later on!Alunrees3326/11/2017

From Crimea. 701489.Easy ascent, but cloud on summit spoiled the views.NormanW12/06/2017
Parked on stoney verge at summit of crimea pass. Gate to track (FP) then open hillside. A path materialises after the col with the power lines. Very wet and windy, low cloud. Yukk.Minto11/06/2017
11.2 mile walk from end of Blaenau Dolwyddelan road on sunny day with high cloud, walked up lane through Coed Mawr farm climbing on good track then followed pathless route up onto Yr Arddu followed small trail to summit, pathless route towards Llyn Edno and trail to Moel Meirch summit, headed south back to Llyn Edno and onto Ysgafell Wen North Top and Ysgafell Wen (lovely and grassy), onto Moel Druman and followed easy grassy trails to Allt-Fawr, by this time the cloud started pouring onto the ridge behind us, left Allt-Fawr in a hurry down to Iwerddon on trail and then pathless across to Moel Dyrnogydd, followed lane over Blaenau Tunnel (footpath on map doesn't exist)back to car. Only saw two fisherman at Llyn Dynogydd all day. Very underrated area of Snowdonia. After walk headed home via Mynydd Nodol.DanTrig07/06/2017
A good, short walk from the climber's car park above Tanygrisiau in strong winds and torrential rain. Somehow the slate quarries and the ruins are at their most atmospheric under such conditions. Up through Cwmorthin quarry and steep grass to the col, then up the ridge. We found the top (very nice), and were surprised to find that it really does not have a cairn. Interesting navigation to Rosyth quarry via the lakes and then down the track. The cafe in Blaenau is very sympathetic to soggy hikers dripping onto the floor.Gill17/03/2017

Awesome but challenging linear walk from the top of the Crimea Pass to Pen-y-Gwryd via here and the two remote Dodds. Very definite sense of wilderness and isolation about this route right in the heart of the national park.Twice Shy30/09/2014
