Plenty of sunny spells. - We struggled to find our way between Drosgl & Aber Falls. Crossing the river at the top of the falls was challenging!

Mark Davidson walked up Drosgl on August 6th, 2002 [with] Alone [weather] Warm with high cloud but a bit hazy - Route directions for this walk are excellent.

Gerald Murphy climbed Drosgl 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.

Robert Taylor-Marriott bagged Drosgl on June 4th, 2014 [from/via/route] Route 60: Bera Mawr, Bera Bach, Drosgl, Gyrn Wigau (BBDG) Completed 04.06.14 [with] Vince Wetton & Robert Taylor-Marriott. [weather] Fair, cloudy.
