Nice weather to start my solo climb, became a bit misty halfway up. Followed the path from Pont Cynfyd up along the ridge with plenty of boulder bashing and reached the top in less than 2hrs. Descended towards Capel Curig before cutting back through forest. 6 miles in total. Stunning views from the top.giant_hiker19/07/2020

First hike back at uniTarkus21/09/2019
Set off in beautiful clear dry weather. At summit cloud closed in, fairly heavy rain bursts and wind gusts of 50mph - had difficulty standing upright !Mickeyfinn04/09/2019
From NE starting at Tyn y Coed hotel CP about 200m NW of start of private road, parking £3. Good road then good track to 375m reservoir, then dilapidated and very wet path past 535m lake and onto steep and scrambly east ridge. NE ridge would have been nicer and probably easier. Descended NNE and soon picked up path NNE down to 250m, then track east to footbridge, a much nicer and easier route than route of ascent.Topographer5723/08/2019

A hill I have long wanted to climb. Parked on A5 near Pont Cyfyng (Waterfall) - Track to Quarries - Llyn-y-foel - Daear Ddu - Carnedd Moel Siabod (Summit and Trig) - circuited Llyn-y-foel on return leg.briandavies05/01/2019
Fantastic days walking, climbed through the cloud to be rewarded with a glimpse of a sunlit mountain top across the valley through a chink in the cloud, then a few minutes later and a bit more climbing brought us into bright sunlight, clear blue sky with the valleys full of cloud. Slowly the valleys cleared too. To cap it all on the way down, a large cloud formed in the valley and blew towards us, with the low sun behind us we were rewarded with a brilliant Brocken Specter, amazing day.Bernard17/11/2018
