Gerald Murphy walked up on July 24th, 2014 [from/via/route] Bethesda riverside car park, Gerlan, Gernydd, Gwaun-y-gwiail, cwm pen-llafar, Foel Fechan, Foel Ganol, Yr Elen, Carnedd Llywelyn, Foel Grach, Carnedd Gwenllian (formerly Carnedd Uchaf), Foel Fras, Yr Aryg, Bera Bach, Drosgl, Gyrn Wigau, Gallt y Mawn, Gwernydd, Gerlan, Bethesda riverside car park. [with] alone [weather] Sunny, occasional high cloud, quite windy higher up, reasonable visibility but some heat haze. - This walk includes 5 of the Welsh 3000s. It would not be an easy or safe walk in poor visibility or during/following a spell of wet weather. Where the ground is not boulder it can be very boggy. In some places it is featureless eg atop Carnedd Llywelyn and, in fog, even with a compass it would be hard to find your way from some places to your desired path. Much of the walk is basically pathless unless you can spot previously trodden paths across marshy ground.
