Walked the route in section 7.5 of the Nuttalls book. Foel Goch, Trum y Gwragedd, Foel y Geifr , Pen y Boncyn Trefeilw, Stac Rhos, Cefn Gwyntog, Cyrniau Nod, Y Groes Fagl. People call these the boring Berwyns but I don't agree. How many of the hundreds of thousands who climb Snowdon and Cader Idris each year would persevere with this walk. It's a real challenge and there are some good views if the weather holds. A very steep descent to Foel Goch reminded me how unfit I've become. Great views at the top, could see Arenig Fawr, Aran Fawddy and Snowdon in the distance inbetween the snow showers. The summit of Trum y Gwragedd was tantalisingly 40 foot on the other side of a barb wire fence. I decided not to be a purist but as I walked on the guilt gnawed at me and, 200 metres later at a corner post, I decided to leave my backpack, cross over and go back to the summit. My gloves and trousers already had holes in them and I'm not sure I'd have risked it if I had been wearing new exptsharp21/03/2017
finished the year with solo ascent of Foel Goch, Trum y Gwragedd and Foel y Geifr on a dull windy day.Lou31/12/2016
Solo walk during a weekend trip to Llangollen for a friend's Birthday. Aber Hirnant - Foel Cwm-Sian Llwyd - along ridge via all Nuttalls to Pen y Cerrig Duon - road - Foel y Geifr - north along ridge - steep descent by forest to road - road back to Aber Hirnant. A rather dull and heathery set of hills!AGWilliamson18/12/2016

14 mile hard circular walk from the cattle grid at the bottom of the pass, used ill-defined footpaths up onto Pen Y Boncyn Trefeilw, then along lane to Stac Rhos up the lane to Cyrniau Nod, back down taking the pretty much pathless ridge to Cefn Gwyntog, descended and forded the stream west above the waterfall, followed lane to road, then followed lane through forest up onto the moors, struggled through hideous pathless heather up onto Cefn Coch, then across more heather to Foel Y Geifr, then down little path onto Trum Y Gwrgedd and Foel Goch back down to car with half an hour of daylight left.DanTrig13/03/2016

My last three Berwyns: - a delightful evening walk along the ridge west of the Hirnant valley, having parked at the top of the Bwlch.ruthatlast18/07/2014
Followed the Nuttalls route apart from Stac Rhos, Cefn Gwyntog, Cyrniau Nod all done as out and back from the track. Each with a handy cairn to indicate where to leave the track. Latter part of the day it poured with rain and cloud came down.axe.stephen28/05/2014
A very very long and tiring day starting at Llangynog and then after Moel Dimoel, Cyrniau Nod, Cefn Gwyntog, Stac Rhos, Pen Y boncyn Trefeilw, Pen YCerrig duon, up the very steep sides of Foel Goch and along the easy ridge to the summit. I climbed over the fence to the West as it did look like the ground was higher there so I walked around a bit to make sure. This is a lovely ridge walk, next hill is Foel Y Geifr.Dazingdale06/05/2014
