With MH in thick mist having done Manod Mawr. Followed boggy path up E side of Llyn y Manod then up the N ridge. Do not stop at the north cairn - the true summit is at the south end.Mark Jackson30/05/2017

Last of the day. I wasn't going to bother after scrambling down west slope of Manod Mawr but by the time I reached bottom it didn't look to bad so up I went.Dusty28/03/2017

Manod Bach, Manod Mawr and Manod North Top (last two with Bev).simon and co04/09/2015
Came down the inclines - should have gone up as well. Inclines start at SH 70706 45052 with a padlock. Not one at the top. From the top of the inclines no paths but no problems.destaylor31/03/2015
From Blaenau up the inclines then round to Llyn y Manod and the north ridge. Returdned by same route.SS24/01/2015
From Blaenau Ffestiniog, a round of Manod Bach, Manod Mawr, NT, Foel-fras, Moel Penamnen, Moel Farlwyd and Moel Dyrnogydd.rhalstead21/03/2014
Clockwise circular round from Blaenau Ffestiniog. Garreg Ddu - Moel Farlwyd - Moel Penamnen - Foel Fras - Manod Mawr North Top - Manod Mawr - Manod Bach. The extremely large building in Maen-offeren Quarries is well worth a peek inside. It's like an industrial museum. The descent off Manod Mawr to the northern tip of Llyn y Manod is fairly ghastly!David Gradwell11/08/2013
As part of a circular walk of Moel Farlwyd, Moel Penamnen, Foel Fras. Manod Mawr North Top, Manod Mawr and Manod Bach.JohnStoneham04/06/2013
Start ~ 706450, parked on road by haulage yard. Climbed up the old slate inclines north of Manod Bach, the followed track to lake and up north ridge. Decent down S.E. ridge then path and lane to Manod village.steve hudson08/04/2013
Parked in Manod and walked along Cae Clyd and picked up good footpath at end of road. Then path up towards Llyn y Manod before nipping over fence and following wall up SE ridge to summit.chriswatson13/03/2013
Detour up and down from Llyn y Manod on descent from Manod Mawr. Dominated by Mawr but a nice top nonetheless.Jake99423/09/2012
From Manod Mawr. Made the mistake of going in a straight line via a steep rocky/heathery descent from Manod Mawr. The route I picked back off Manod Bach was also slow and difficult but fun anyway.clivevilla26/08/2012
6th of 6. A painted lady was basking on a stone near the summit. Quick dash back for the last train to Porthmadog and a nice beer on the way.Herbert Anchovy29/05/2012
