From Gerlan (Bethesda) visiting Gyrn Wigau and then along into Cwm Caseg to climb Yr Elen east ridge.knarf06/06/2016
Only had a few hours so this seemed perfect to finish my trip as it had beaten me twice in the past. Started in Bethesda and ascended the East side and came back down the West side. Was at the top just after 9am. The views of Bangor and the Menai Straits were phenomenal although many of the higher tops had cloud on their summits. Think I may have left my grey top somewhere as it had disappeared when I got back down.tsharp04/06/2016
