A cracking November day with blue skies throughout. A470 car park to Iwerrdon, Allt-Fawr, Moel Druman, Ysgafell Wen, Yr Arddu, Moel Meirch, Cerrig Cochion, Carnedd y Cribau, Clogwyn Bwlch-y-maen, Moel Siabod, then through the forest to Dolwyddelan.

Parked at the Crimea Pass and headed up Allt Fawr and Moel Druman. I walked past Ysgafell Wen, despite Mark challenging me. We did the North Top and the Far North Top and then returned to it. Quite a long slog down, following the stream downhill. The river crossing at SH 6834 4952 was not easy and also there was a new barbed wire fence with no style which was a bit of a problem. The last mile and a bit on the track was easy.tsharp13/09/2018

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

After descent from Cnicht, via Llyn yr Adar - hadn't realised this was a top, just an obvious cairn on an outcrop with great views. We headed on to Ysgafell Wen itself, but omitted the top due to not realising how close it was!thesweetcheat12/09/2015

In a contrived circuit from near Blaenau Ffestiniog. Craigysgafna is the gem and unexpected too. Later on, it is more of a slog but the slate quarries provide interest.SS02/10/2010
