Good parking at the cattle grid. Under one hour on good farm tracks. Solo.bolton26/03/2019
Up by the disgusting track from the road summit at SH906454 through rotting silage, farm muck and 14 million ewes. On to the South Top for a preferable descent.Eddie13/01/2018
4/6 (Mwdl-Eithin/Bryn y Gors-Goch/Moel Eglwys/Moel y Gydnos/Garn Pyrs/Foel Frech)Fergalh22/10/2017
Parked to west of Moel y Gydros at start of a track that goes to the top. Followed track firstly downhill into a valley and then uphill all the way to the top. Track leads very close to top and in fact makes a circle of it. Descent was the same as ascent but where the path flattens out before the large bend dropped straight down to the track.MikeM01/08/2017
Track from the west.Rob5026/03/2017
Tracks from the W.Chris Peart08/09/2016
From minor road to west. Parked on grass verge a few metres north of the high point at SH90635 45458 (Space for 2 or 3 cars) Followed farm track to within a couple of metres of the summit cairn. (S)gerrybowes11/06/2016
Parked to the west (south of the brow of the road), started up a track and then veered off for the summit of both tops.clivevilla03/02/2016
Parked on verge just south of Gydros 908463. Followed right of way onto access land then followed fence south. Would be easier to use the track west of the fence but about 30 cows with calves were in the way so did not wish to disturb them or appear to pose a threat. Needed to climb barbed wire fence to gain the summit, and another en route to the south top.ijpowell26/09/2015
Parking near Hafod-yr-Esgob i first climbed Graig Ddu,followed the high ground to Trum Nant-fach and then climbed Moel y Gydros making a great circular walk.mad max23/06/2015
With Calebsimon and co22/11/2014
From layby on B4501 up farm track then bit of a trudge through heather over Criag Ddu and Craig yr Hafod, particularly beyond latter. Easy track up Moel y Gydros then down to south and along access route (difficult to follow at first) and a mile of road walk.SS05/10/2014
Plenty of space to park to the west, the track zigzagging up the hillside is the easiest route.JohnStoneham25/03/2014
Cerrigydrudion to Ysbyty Ifan, including Carnedd y Filiast and a couple of Pedwars.Alex C01/06/2013
