Excellent parking at SH353440. Tk to col at SH362454, then relentless grind up to summitIsbjorn30/01/2024
Hommage to Rory Gowland. Alumni gathered at summit to toast his memory with Rory's own cider. Outstanding weather for it.richardrosser15/10/2023
Ascent from col to north. Incredible cloud inversion at about 500m. Bright sunshine at top with a sea of white below and distant mountains poking their tops out. Never seen anything like it before. Twiggy not really impressed.desperate dan09/10/2023
From Llanaelhaearn, via B4417 and FP. Very scrambly over boulder fields. Next to Tre'r Ceiri on a much better path.IanHHill30/08/2023
Easy up gravel track opposite large car park, 20 - 30 mins up to path on right, steep up to some ruins then steepish and a bit scrambly in sections but not too hard to top, back down same way but straight across main path up to quarry building with fine viewpoint, back to startTribal2er25/07/2023
20 years and 17 days since I was last up here. And I didn't have a view then either.Minto19/07/2023

2 of 3 after night in the Motorhome parked on croes-higol road. From the quarry up steep track. A few stops needed in the blistering sun but what a view at the top!! Marilyn no. 75The-Z-Man01/06/2023

Up and back from the car park. Super foggy day and tricky walk in places. Obvious path but some slippery/ rocky sections. Had lunch at the top, sheltered in circle of stones next to trig.Hippy7716/02/2023

From Trefor for a round of Gyrn Ddu, Bwlch Mawr and Yr Eifl.rhalstead29/12/2022
Made a right cock up of this as did not look at the map and just headed straight up from the car park. On the lower slopes it was not too bad but higher up it was thick heather and large boulders. Took just over 30 minutes to the top. Views were stunning in every direction. Found the proper path on the way back down so it was slightly longer but a lot easier. Including the 20 minutes of relaxation on the summit it took me 70 minutes for 2.16 miles. Saw Stonechats Meadow Pipits Raven and out to sea a Gannet. Climbed Snowdon the day before but I have to say this hill would be my choice every time.isabelle31/08/2022
Parked in the main car park to the south west at 35298 44069, ascended from the south and descended towards the quarry, Two and half mile taking an hour twenty.WAYNE ROWLETT20/08/2022

The three Yr Eifl summits - clockwise from Mt Pleasant CP. Good hills - pleasant walk.Crib Goch26/07/2021
From the Mount Pleasant car park along the ROW to the exceptional fortifications of Tre'r Ceiri, then over to the interesting Trig of Yr Eifl and on to the panoramic peak of its North Top. Fascinating walk in fabulous weather - just a shame that Wales was getting trounced at Euro 2020 as we wandered up and down the rocky trails.summitter26/06/2021
