Parked at croesor, circular walk. Ascent to cnicht, followed path to edge of llyn yr Adar, took a south towards the quarry, ascent to moelwyn mawr, decent down craigysgfan, then west down valley to road.noxibis17/11/2018
This was a great walk. Not sunny but dry and cloud was generally quite high. Great view of Porthmadog and other tops. Loved the ruined quarry landscapes. Hard to comprehend how huge these quarries were and how many people they employ unless you actually go there and walk round. Started in Tanygrisia and up to Rhosydd Quarry, Moel-yrHydd, past the huge 'twll', North Ridge Top, Moelwyn Mawr,Craigysgafn, Moelwyn Bach, down to Croesor village, Cnicht, North Top and then back to the quarry via the col and down to Tanygrisia.tsharp10/09/2018

SUNNY DAY AS FORECAST SO WENT FOT THE BIG MOELWYNS WALK FROM CROESOR (NUTTALLS WALK 5.3). LOTS OF FAMILIES ON WAY UP CNICHT AND GOOD WALK OVER CNICHT N. TOP TO THE COL BUT PATH WET AND HARD TO FOLLOW TO THE QUARRY. EASY ASCENT OF MOEL-YR-HYDD WITH AMAZING VIEWS DOWN TO RESERVOIR AND BLAENAU FFESTINIOG. EASY ASCENT OF MOELWYN MAWR N. RIDGE TOP AND LONG SLOG UP MOELWYN MAWR BUT ON GOOD PATH. DELIGHTFUL DESCENT OVER CRAIGYSGAFN TO COL AND EASY UP MOELWYN BACH WITH MIST ON TOP, THEN GOOD PATH BACK TO CROESOR.BURGESS16/08/2013

Tedious slog up from Bwlch y Rhosydd but on subsequent times have made an easy detour from Moel yr-Hydd en route to Moelwyn Mawr to include it - it's an esoteric top.Jake99422/09/2012
