From Nant Peris down the road to Gwastadnant to pick up the path to Y Garn. We then traversed to Foel Goch followed by Mynydd Perfedd. We then take the ridge to Carnedd y Filiast 821 m and its subsidiary peak of Y Fronllwyd 720 m. We then took the path above the access tunnel to the power station at the head of the reservoir to ascend Elidir Fawr. This is a very steep path not shown on maps. We set out in fog and rain and this transformed into a sunny day with beautiful views of Snowdon.Lazylizzie26/05/2019
Steep climb from Mynydd Perfedd, descent back wasn't as bad as expected. Tried my new poles for the first time and was very pleased!bescot4205/05/2019

Final day of three in Wales with Smithy & Shaky: windy & with rain forecast. From Idwal Cottage round Llyn Idwal & up the NE ridge of Y Garn with a quick detour to that summit. Over to Foel-goch while the other two took the lower traversing path, then round to a mist shrouded Elidir Fawr. Got greedy & headed up Mynydd Perfedd at which point the promised rain arrived big time, not the ideal point for Shaky to discover that he had forgotten his overtrousers! Over to Carnedd y Filiast & then back to the first stile underneath Mynydd Perfedd & followed faint path on vague ridge between Cwm Perfedd & Cwm Bual. Dropped into the latter to reach the minor road & a wander back to the start.NotReallyABagger23/04/2018

4th summit of the day, from Llanberis, via slate quarry and Cwm Dudodyn to Elidir Fawr, Mynydd Perfydd, Carnedd Y Filiast and then along the ridgeline to Foel Goch. I thought this was actually Mynydd Perfydd and so carried on the fenceline but ended up going up Y Garn and only realised the problem when I was half the way up so made my way down and back to Foel Goch and intersected the ridge to Y llymilwyd and followed a zigzag track down the mushroom garden and eventually to Idwal Cottage for some refreshments.Dazingdale10/07/2014
