Iwerddon, Allt Fawr, Moel Druman, Ygafell Wen, Ysgafell Wen North Top, Ysgafell Wen far North top, Moel Meirch and Moel Dyrnogydd. Parked at Crimea pass. Very hard walk, especially as it was completely pathless and ver boggy rough ground from Moel Merch to Moel Dyrnogydd. Cold July day.Lazylizzie14/07/2020
With Rufus from the Crimea Pass lay-by. Actually wanted to head up the hills to the east but the access land has got no obvious gates or stiles and the fence is shoulder high with multiple strands of barbed wire so Ill look into that another time. Followed the track for a hundred metres and turned left to take the spur towards Llyn Dyrnogydd. Walk towards fence just SW of summit and to the top. One of these hills Ive always looked at but never got round to.jacobrichmond20/03/2020

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

Walked up this from Roman Bridge train station then over Allt Fawr and down to Tanygrisiau. The path from Hendre exists only on the map, had a nightmare tussle with heather until I got onto the NE ridge. Should have taken the clear track that starts near the entrance to the Blaenau Tunnel instead. Hindsight is a blessing...Jake99430/06/2014

Solo bagging run up from Dolwydden - rough, tough and swamps-heavy going to ridge. Sun in eyes. Beautiful clear and mild (bare top at one point in December)-down track above railway tummel from here.Chris Pearson14/12/1997
