Whilst staying at H F Guest House, Craflwyn Hall, near Beddgelert. Solo. After ascending Snowdon I descended the SW ridge (Bwlch Main) passing several people going up but far, far fewer than were going up from Pen-y-Pass. I went over a minor top before descending the S ridge to reach Bwlch Cwm Llan. There were only a few people here. I scrambled up to the top of Yr Aran. A couple were also making the ascent of Yr Aran, the only people I saw on this hill. I continued to Craig Wen, descending to Craflwyn Hall.pwbellarby13/05/2017

This day started off majestically as I climbed up through a temperature inversion over Crib Goch. Snowdon was chocker as usual but at least there were excellent views for a change. Yr Aran, the lowest summit of the three for the day, was by no means an anticlimax and the afternoon drew to a satisfying conclusion with a well needed bottle of cold water down at Craflwyn Hall.Alex C08/09/2012

The Rhyd-Ddu path turns left on joining with the Bedgellert path and heads straight for Snowdon; I carried straight on towards the South Snowdon Mine Buildings, with the round top of Yr Aran straight ahead. Past the tarn a vague path turns right and leads up the eastern side of the mountain – quite a tough climb but the reward is a breathtaking view up Snowdon’s South Ridge all the way to its summit.peter4lc26/08/2001

This seems the awkward Ma to include in a walk on Snowdon, but this route proved revealing and interesting: Beddgelert- Pitts Head- Llechog- Snowdon via Bwlch Main there and back- Bwlch Cwm Llan- Yr Aran- Pont Bethania- Beddgelert. I explored old quarries SW of Bwlch Cwm Llan and made my way from there to the SW ridge of Yr Aran, much nicer than a direct way from the pass, then descended the E ridge to a mine from where I picked up a good path which joined the Watkin Path lower down. Hazy, 10 miles visibility, but much of interest and detail to explore and see.pwheeler05/09/1982

With Mark Gratian Paul Haevey : From Rhd Dhu dchill01/01/1970
Chester Rambling Club day trip by coach to road junction the other side of Lyn Dinas. Party led by Brian Frost and Arthur Wong on track leading past Hafod y Porth (on south west side) to old mine workings (not marked on map). Ascent straight to top of Yr Aran and down the other side (broken rocks, steep). We ascended the south ridge of Snowdon to summit. A pleasant walk. Descent via Crib y Ddysgl and Crib Goch to Pen y Pass. Others descended via Pyg track. Fine warm weather but cloud and haze at a distance.pwbellarby07/10/1962

After using the Watkin Path to Snowdon we descended the ridge to Yr Aran. A lovely little hill - far from the maddening crowds. There was a solitary man on the top painting the valley below (on paper).ChinnockCblank
Beautiful day. Small summit. Quiet route.Team GBblank
