from road end east of Eisingug, via small lakes and N ridge.IanHHill30/05/2019
Parked at the start as per book to walk to the summit. The track is easy to follow and gets you to within 500m of the summit. Great viewsAristotle Chip26/05/2019
With Silas, Ruby and Delilah. Very windy at the top.simonjallen15/04/2019
From Moel-glo, limited parking but gives good high access. Follow miners track to upper path split near wall, right fork. Both tops visited, can return by going to the east side of the rocky bluff to pick up the other track that courses round on a strata level below 4-7m rock wall back to the lower Lakes. Easy way to learn the complexity of this rugged terrain.N.Morters12/04/2019

Surely it's rocky neighbour deserved inclusion on the T100 list rather than this.bardolph29/09/2017
I was surprised this hill is in the Trail 100, as the Wycombe Wanderer was last year. I traversed it and enjoyed it, a good hillDavid Bell07/06/2017
Staying at Tallin farm so walked from there.Up Cwm Moch to Moel y Gyrafolen and then Foel Penolau (yes, I did both peaks) and then on to Moel Ysgyfarnogod. Great views of the Llyn Peninsula, particularly on the way down. Saw 2 or 3 people but only in the distance.tsharp03/06/2017

Continuation of walk from Foel Penolau. Followed the path south-west down the rock terraces of the south top to bwlch, then up over grass to the summit. To descend, headed west to pick up grassy track down to Cefn Clawdd, then lane down to lake and north back to the car. Solo.Man of Kernow118/09/2016
From Foel Penolau. Noticed last night that this is a Trail 100, which intrigued me as it was barely on my radar. Not an obvious peak by shape but assuming they mean the traverse of the whole ridge, I totally get it. Wasn't in the itinery but obviously had to walk the lot. On to south top.Wycombe Wanderer17/09/2016
Hit as part of a route from Trawsfynydd to Llanelltyd over Moel Ysgyfarnogo, Rhing Fawr, Rhing Fach, Y Llethyr, Diffwys and Y Garn. Two days, wild camped on east shore of Llyn Hywelandrew.morel27/07/2016
8 mile round of northern Rhinogs 7 summits with Neil H for his 61st birthday off work. Fantastic landscapes here with amazing slabby rocksMark Sims01/07/2016
Good track leads from just before the farm at the road end. Then straight up the hill.jenx28/06/2016
Repeat w Jenx. Parking just before farm at end of road. Follow track off right before the farm not the one that goes through it. The former leads easily in a loop up to 440m under the summit. Gap in wall and grassy slopes to trigged top.nordicstar28/06/2016
