As part of West to East traverse of the Nantlle Ridge with 13 year old son. Dropped off at around SH481518. Took us about 9 hours on a very warm but mainly cloudy day.clyoung18/08/2016
Excellent traverse of the whole Nantlle ridge from Y Garn to Mynydd Graig Goch (start at Rhyd-Ddu, end at Nebo). Climbed solo. Weather dry and mild. Drifting mist around summits, but cleared often enough for good views along ridge and to nearby mountains. Only saw 2 people all day (in Lake District would have been hundreds!). Scrambly bit on Mynydd Drws-y-Coed was a highlight but not difficult ... In fact whole ridge was interesting. Lovely views of Lleyn peninsula from the wierd rocky tors on the last summit of Mynydd Graig Goch. Total time 5.5 hours.jamessteel10004/08/2016
Ascent up Braich Cwmdulyn, popping to Garnedd Goch and back and over Bwlch Cwmdulyn to Mynydd Garn Goch, return to Llyn Dulyn.Dewi Prysor27/07/2016
As part of a Nantlle Ridge traverse, from Y garn to Graig Goch, overnight camp under Moel Hebog. ML training.Matt Smith18/07/2016
Classic crossing of the Nantlle ridge w Jenx. More than 25 yrs in the offing. Just over 4 hrs, good lines. Finished down in Nebo. Taxi (01286 676767) from the school back to Rhyd-Ddu £15.nordicstar27/06/2016
Climbed up from Cefntrefor-Isaf as the first hill on a traverse S-N of the Nantlle Ridge. Lots of low cloud, but dry.DanMaisieBex11/06/2016
This was a walk of 2 halves for me. The ridge itself was, on a day like today with such good weather and visibility, is one of the best walks in Wales if not the whole country. The second half, getting back to the start, was not so good. Next time I think I'll walk through to Nebo or Pen-y-Groes and get a taxi back to Rhydd Ddu. Parked the car at Rhydd Ddu and up to Y Garn with incredible views of Anglesey (as far as Holyhead) and Snowdon and later the Llyn peninsula and then a modest scramble up to Mynydd Drws-y-coed and then an easy walk to Trum y Ddysgl and Mynydd Tal-y-mignedd and then a bit more strenuous walk to Craig Cwm Silyn with its strange rectangular stone structures and an easy walk to Garnedd Goch followed by a steepish descent to Mynydd Graig Goch which is worth “going the extra mile” as it has an interesting rocky summit. The whole walk was a really excellent ridge walk. Then came the return home. Tried to get to the public footpath at GR508 482 but there was no eatsharp01/06/2016
Mega day on the Nantlle ridge- a fantastic route. Started from Rhyd Ddu, traversed Y Garn, Mynydd Drws-y-coed, Trum y Ddysgl, Mynydd Tal-y-mignedd, Craig Cwm Silyn, Garnedd-goch & Mynydd Graig Goch, returning via Bwlch-y-ddwy-Elor.Cas-gwent23/05/2016
The Nantlle ridge with Dave. Grey day, intermittent hill fog. Route was a one-way with cars at Rhyd Dde (start) and Nebo. Hills were Y Garn; Mynydd Drws-y-coed; Trum y Ddysgl; Mynydd Tal-y-Mignedd; Craig Cwm Silyn; Garnedd Goch; Mynydd Graig Goch.Skip22/05/2016
Got there at last! Fine walking day. Parked at road corner (better down rough track to end of Llyn Cwmdulyn) Circular walk onto Braich, crossing Bwlch, and over plateau to rocky summit. Dog chased grey squirrel round & round & over large rock until called off. Not a tree for 2 miles and 1000ft. Clambered over all tops, over ladder stile and down path to lake. Stayed Conwy YH; OK. Base visit to RAF Valley nxt day, also enjoyable.martin & storm08/09/2015
