A lovely round of Y Pincin, Crimpiau, Craig Wen, Clogwyn Mannod NW Top, Clogwyn Pryfed and Clogwyn Mannod. Just over 8 miles in just over 4 hours as the second half was mainly pathless.clivevilla30/08/2018

From Capel Curig: Pen Llithrig y Wrach, Creigiau Gleision North Top,Creigiau Gleision, Craiglwyn, Craig Wen, Crimpiau. Really hard walk,on Good Friday: 12 miles over rough terrain and faint paths. Took 9+ hours.Lazylizzie30/03/2018
A favourite short walk of mine. Last walk of the year did not disappoint. Wet and wild, slippery underfoot and very quiet. Nice stop at the top until the heavens opened! good views to the north and west. Walked up from capel curig, a climb up the left hand side to reach the boglands, across from there to to skim along the Crimpiau back down the northern side towards crafnant before veering around the east and following the hardstanding path down.char4chocs29/12/2017

Cefn Cyfarwydd, Creigiau Gleision north top, Creigiau Gleison, Craiglwyn, Craig Wen and Crimpiau. From Llyn Crafnant.Alunrees3309/07/2017
12 mile walk from Capel Curig starting in sunshine, followed road then up boggy path to water channel, followed water channel to foot of Y Braich ridge and climbed to Pen Yr Helgi Du, the weather was still good by this time but the Glyders went into cloud, descended and steeply ascended onto Pen Llithrig Y Wrach, descended to end of reservoir and ascended pathless slopes onto Creigiau Gleison, by this time the weather had took a turn for the worst, we nearly went into cloud. Followed rough path onto Craiglwyn, then climbed up Craig Wen and Crimpiau, by this time every hill we had done earlier went into cloud, descended to Capel Curig. Great but strenuous walk, if we had started an hour later all the walk would have probably been in cloud!DanTrig09/04/2017
Continuation of walk from Y Pincin. Followed the route to Llyn Crafnant, diverting west on the path to the summit. Continued on to Llyn Carfanant for tea, returning to Capel Curig by much the same route as outwards. NW Office walk.marktrengove31/03/2017
From Capel Curig up and out past Llyn Cowly Rsvr then return over Creigiau Gleision ridge, Craig Wen and Crimpiau before dropping back to Capel Curig.SS31/07/2016
Having given up on trying to get to sleep decided to drive up from Shrewsbury to enable an early start. From Llyn Crafnant (the road up here is quite an experience in the dark). A good path runs almost all the way to summit. A fine hill.stig_nest01/07/2016
