Round of Carnedd Llewelyn, Pen yr Helgi Du, Pen Lithrig Wrach and Craigiau Gleision from Gwern Goch Isaf. Up the hydro road then steep but decent path E of reservoir up onto SE ridge. A short but awkward scramble followed, not too steep but bare rock with weak holds. Thereafter gentle sloped short grass.Topographer5724/08/2019
A hot sunny and humid day giving superb views throughout the walk. With E from Gern Gif Isaf Farm (parking £2) up grassy paths as far as Pen yr Helgi Du then solo. E didn’t fancy ridge and rock band and I think it was the sensible option - tough! Continued up to Carnedd Llywelyn, Carnedd Dafydd and Pen yr Ole Wen. Very steep and long descent to Afon Lloer and Glan Dena.Beeliner23/07/2019

Continued on from climbing Pen yr Ole Wen, Carnedd Dafydd to this the highest mountain in the Carnedau range. Really steep gravelly climb, zig zagging up to a flat open summit. Very exposed and rocky. Superb views of North Wales on a clear day, can see Shropshire in very far distance and all the great mountains of Wales.giant_hiker22/06/2019

Parked Dave's car at Glan Dena on the A5 (SH 669 604) then in my car to Abergwyngregyn and the small carpark at SH 675 716. A day of two halves: before lunch it was sunny and breezy with clear views; but in the afternoon low cloud and squally rain blew in and the wind increased to 40mph gusting up to 50mph - arduous walking into the wind. Route was Drum, Foel Fras, Carnedd Gwenllian, Foel Grach, Carnedd Llewelyn, Carnedd Dafydd and Pen Y Ole Wen. Started about 10.15; finished about 6pm, slowed by the wind.Skip16/02/2019
