Parked at small car park at head of valley. Foel Lwyd, Tal y Fan, Carnedd y Ddelw, Drum, Pen y Castell then Penygadair (east and west tops).BobHancock12/04/2017
A nice walk from Nant-y-Coed Nature reserve, with a disgracefully late start. Good path then off piste ASAP direct to Foel Lwyd up a nice grassy cwm, and a good path along the wall to Tal y Fan, with little rock steps here and there. Very wet and very windy, with a bit of horizontal sleet for good measure. Back to the col, and an instruments only descent across the moor. Good path to the path junction (cairn), ATV tracks for a while, then pathless to the crash site below Moelfre. The fog cleared to a glorious sunset and fine sea views. This was very welcome, as there was no need to slavishly follow the bearing through the middle of the bogs. North Wales path back to the start.Gill16/03/2017
Drove to car park with top portion of road covered in pools of water and slush. Raining at car park. Walked back down road and then left over stile. Followed path gradually getting more indistinct as snow increased with height to the bwlch between Foel Lwyd and Tal y Fan. Turned left . Snow now knee deep and only odd places were path was visible. Eventually over wall (easy, snow almost to top of wall) to top. Back to wall (Not as easy this side no snow). Turned left and continued to stile over wall. Should have turned down hand railing the wall. Didn't, over wall and down before realising. Straight down then and eventually hand railed on left side down wall I should have done earlier. Back to track and car park. Not a nice day. In cloud for much of time. Knee deep show for a lot of the way. Very tiring, snow wouldn't support weight.MikeM23/11/2016
