From Snowdon Ranger car park, up the main track, but taking the left fork to revisit Foel Goch to bag it as a Dewey, then along the ridge over Foel Gron to Moel Eliio. Then back tracked and over Moel Cynghorion, before re-joining the Snowdon Ranger path. A tough climb up this section in the heat of a very hot day to reach Crib y Ddysgl, then joining the long line of hikers heading for Yr Wyddfa, the Snowdon summit, but only a 10 minute queue to reach the trig. A long, nearly 9 hour, day in the heat to cover the 22km with 1700m of ascent.silverwolf_alan10/08/2022

10.6 mile walk from end of little road leaving Llanberis (not many spaces to leave cars). Following good path into Maesgwm valley then a fairly steep pull onto Moel Cynghorion. We descended back to the col and climbed very steeply onto Foel Goch, then followed the lovely grassy ridge over Foel Gron and onto Moel Eilio (2nd time bagged) then a long descent to Bwlch Y Groes. Easy up onto Cefn-Du then back to col and descended along good tracks back to car. 968m ascent in high cloud/sunny/breezy conditions. Great views of the surrounding hills, a few people about.DanTrig13/06/2022
