From the Crimea Pass. Welsh Hump completion for the nth time. I may well have been on this before as I climbed Moel Penamnen from the same place but thought I’d make sure.Chris Peart06/03/2020

From car park on Crimea Pass at 70176 48937. Headed straight for the summit with faint or no paths. Underfoot fairly easy 30 minutes, 0.93 miles.clivevilla24/10/2018
From the car park at Crimea Pass. Moel Farlwyd, Moel Penamnen, Foel-Fras and Y Ro Wen. Beautiful winter day, very cold but clear and sunny.Alunrees3324/11/2017
From the stile at the south end of the car park on the Crimea Pass. Headed E.N.E to the ridge to make it easier. Headed for Foel Fras next. Solo.bolton09/06/2017
Steep and rocky descent from Moel Penamnen to bwlch north of Llynnau Barlwyd and nearly as steep ascent again up Moel Farlwyd. Maybe something to do with long hard day from the Manods. Very satisfying to see 4 of the days five peaks from this summit, the Manods seem a long way away. Now for a 3 mile hike back to the van in Blaenau Ffestiniog.SteveSmith11/10/2016
Parked in the free car park at the Crimea Pass, then over the hidden stile, located by the wall at the edge of the car park. Quick, easy ascent, great views in lovely autumn sunshine. With JT.Sprog09/10/2016
From car park to west. Surprisingly big drop to bwlch that wouldn't have been surprising if I'd looked at the map properly. On to Moel Penamnen.Wycombe Wanderer17/09/2016

Crimea Car Park at SH70163 48927 – Over ‘hidden’ stile immediately south of car park & then straight up & down, hitting the ridge to the north of the summit. (S)gerrybowes18/06/2016
From car park at Crimea, up road, over BWF and follow fence steeply to top.arranc06/09/2015
Quick gain of height using mountain bike access road then across to summit after negotiating barbed wire. Returned straight down to road (more barbed) and back to car. Good views to south east and south west, cloud obscuring northern view.SS25/05/2015

From Blaenau Ffestiniog, a round of Manod Bach, Manod Mawr, NT, Foel-fras, Moel Penamnen, Moel Farlwyd and Moel Dyrnogydd.rhalstead21/03/2014
Clockwise circular round from Blaenau Ffestiniog. Garreg Ddu - Moel Farlwyd - Moel Penamnen - Foel Fras - Manod Mawr North Top - Manod Mawr - Manod Bach. The extremely large building in Maen-offeren Quarries is well worth a peek inside. It's like an industrial museum. The descent off Manod Mawr to the northern tip of Llyn y Manod is fairly ghastly!David Gradwell11/08/2013
As part of a circular walk of Moel Farlwyd, Moel Penamnen, Foel Fras. Manod Mawr North Top, Manod Mawr and Manod Bach.JohnStoneham04/06/2013
I climbed up from the Crimea pass. Above about 550 metres the snow was quite deep, hard and coated in rime. At the summit it was a white out. I then continued to the Hewitt.isabelle11/02/2013
Took Ffestiniog railway from Porthmadog to Blaenau F and then walked up through the Maen Offeren quarry. Circular walk taking in Moel Farlwyd, Moel Penamnen, Foel Fras, the Manods Mawr and Manod Bach. Only just made the last train back but had a good beer to end the day.Herbert Anchovy29/05/2012

Parked in layby on Crimea pass. Climbed Moel Dyrnogydd and Iwerddon, then descended to the pass road and climbed south to summit of Moel Farlwyd.Clear day with lots of lying snow.steve hudson17/02/2010
Started from the top of the crimea pass, A470. Made a direct line to summit. Cold, clear day with about 6 inches of snow at road level and good views over surrounding hills. Walked with SH.wombourne17/02/2010
