Up from Bwlch Tyddiath, & on to the main top to the NE.DanMaisieBex14/07/2019
From Cwm Bychan and Roman Stepstrimarc226/06/2019
Large parking area at Cwm Bychan (Honesty Box) - Up Roman Steps to top of pass & then NE along faint & sometimes indistinguishable path which runs about 80yds to the W. of the summit outcrop. From summit, dropped back down to path & continued to Moel Morwynion. (S)gerrybowes21/05/2017

From Craig Llyn Ddu. Navigation not easy through rocky terrain with deep valleys.clivevilla19/05/2016
Parked at Cwm Bychan took the path up to the Bwlch next to Clip then across to Craig Wion then 3 tops of Moel Morwynion descended via Roman Steps back to Cwm Bychan.Rob5016/10/2015
En passant between 3373 and 3394 - didn't find much of a path. Heather and co slowed progress down.destaylor15/09/2015
Continuation of walk from Moel 'Morwynion'. Descended to boggy bwlch and easily up by faint path to visit the north and south tops of the hill. Descended on good path to Roman Steps path and west back to Cwm Bychan. With DM and MP on a survey.marktrengove21/09/2014
Parked at Llyn Cwm Bechan. Roman steps up to Craig Llyn Du via fair path along wall skirting round the west of the summit. 20 goats on top. Descended to Roman steps on path to east of summit then navigation nightmare began in thick mist and constant heavy rain. Don't try it without a satnav! Moel Morwynion south west top, Moel Morwynion, Moel Morwynion north east top, Craig Wion. Extremely rough going over pathless mature heather and rock with repeated descents of mini-crags (via safe but scrambly cracks in the crags). When I say pathless, there were plenty of sheep trods with boot prints/'paths' but always going somewhere else and contantly disappearing - follow your bearing and not these 'paths'. Finally descent on public right of way below Clip.ijpowell03/10/2013

Same as AW and DP - on CUHWC Easter trip, in a March heatwave and glorious sunshine. Mostly very rough and slow going, but fascinating terrain and a real sense of exploration.Mark Jackson24/03/2012
