2/7. From Craig Stwlan. Been up Moelwyn Mawr a few times without noticing this top but always a pleasure to revisit this area. Interesting slate workings nearby and some incredibly big holes between this hill and Moel yr Hydd. Headed on to Foel Ddu.Herbert Anchovy10/04/2015

SUNNY DAY AS FORECAST SO WENT FOT THE BIG MOELWYNS WALK FROM CROESOR (NUTTALLS WALK 5.3). LOTS OF FAMILIES ON WAY UP CNICHT AND GOOD WALK OVER CNICHT N. TOP TO THE COL BUT PATH WET AND HARD TO FOLLOW TO THE QUARRY. EASY ASCENT OF MOEL-YR-HYDD WITH AMAZING VIEWS DOWN TO RESERVOIR AND BLAENAU FFESTINIOG. EASY ASCENT OF MOELWYN MAWR N. RIDGE TOP AND LONG SLOG UP MOELWYN MAWR BUT ON GOOD PATH. DELIGHTFUL DESCENT OVER CRAIGYSGAFN TO COL AND EASY UP MOELWYN BACH WITH MIST ON TOP, THEN GOOD PATH BACK TO CROESOR.BURGESS16/08/2013

Tedious slog up from Bwlch y Rhosydd but on subsequent times have made an easy detour from Moel yr-Hydd en route to Moelwyn Mawr to include it - it's an esoteric top.Jake99422/09/2012

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

Looks like a pimple from the top of Cnicht. But when you have descended it is a fair way back up. Be careful with navigation as it is easy to make it much harder than it is.destaylor08/04/2008
