"From car park at road-end at Bwlch y Ddeufaen. Solo. Past the two standing stones and on path on NW and N sides of walls to Foel Lwyd. Continued on path towards Tal y Fan. At col crossed stile to E side of wall where OS 1:25,000 map shows path. Reached trig point and stood on rock close-by, which is the highest point. Crossed stile to the other side of wall and used path on this side of wall to descend to col - it's slightly easier on this side of the wall. Followed outward route back to car park. Good weather and good views. " - Tal y Fan, peter43, Apr 14, 2018
"I drove up the single track road from Tal-y-Bont through Llanbedr-y-cennin. I was unfortunately trapped between a tractor towing a trailer in front and another farmer's vehicle behind. We very slowly ascended without the opportunity to stop and check where we were going. Found myself at Bwlch-y-gaer, backtracked and on to the car park at road-end at Bwlch y Ddeufaen. Walked along the roman road past the two standing stones and on the NW and N sides of walls to Foel Lwyd. Actual highest point is on S side of wall but not far from wall where is ground is only very slightly lower. On to Tal y Fan" - Foel Lwyd, peter43, Apr 14, 2018
"Staying at Plas Cadnant. With Anne. From the café at the RSPB South Stack Reserve. Along paths and tracks, of which there is a good deal of choice, to the trig point at the summit of Holyhead Mountain and back. Weather good." - Holyhead Mountain, peter43, Apr 12, 2018
"The Nantlle Ridge from Rhyd-Ddu to near Maen-llŵyd. With daughter, Katherine. We came out of the mist as we approached Mynydd Tal-y-mignedd. Craig Cwm Silyn looked impressively steep and we were in mist again as we started up the scramble to the summit. It was not as difficult as it had seemed from afar. From Garnedd-goch we followed the wall NW to get to the road end; horrible boggy bit low down where the route crosses a stream." - Craig Cwm Silyn, peter43, Apr 11, 2018
"The Nantlle Ridge from Rhyd-Ddu to near Maen-llŵyd. With daughter, Katherine. Followed good path from SH566526 which goes steeply up to the summit of Y Garn. Good visibility here but mist came down for scramble up Mynydd Drws-y-coed. Compass in use for ascent of Trum y Ddysgl and on to Mynydd Tal-y-mignedd. The connecting col between these two hills has a level platform with very steep sides with a somewhat disconcerting dip half way along. It is easy enough to negotiate, though." - Trum y Ddysgl, peter43, Apr 11, 2018
