Christina Lander walked up on May 15th, 2019 [from/via/route] Llanberis - Moel Eilio - Foel Gron - Foel Goch - Moel Cynghorion - Llanberis [with] Dick & Meg [weather] Beautiful, warm, sunny day

Bleddyn Rhys climbed on December 28th, 2016 [from/via/route] Waunfawr i Rhyd Ddu [with] Caradog Rhys

Gerald Murphy bagged on July 3rd, 2015 [from/via/route] gw118 The only variation that I made to route gw118 was as follows: From the Llanberis path I followed the tramway towards Clogwyn Coch but, as soon as Llyn Du'r Arddu came into view, I left the tramway and veered west along the ridge above the lake. This gave me some beautiful views both of Clogwyn, of the lake and, ahead, of Mynydd Mawr. There is a faint trod path between the rocks of the ridge. After passing the lake I dropped down gradually, following the ridge and, eventually, crossing the outlet stream over an easy route across abundant rocks. I didn't see any of the cairns mentioned on the route notes, although I'm sure that I must have been close to the intended route. The big mistake that I then made was to head North West to what appeared, from a distance, to be a path headed up Cynghorion's East face. This, however led me into a boggy patch and, at one point, stepping onto what looked like firm ground, had me with one leg submerged to above the knees! Fortunately, I got back onto a firmer surface quickly and, in sunny weather with a drying breeze, I soon dried out as I walked. I headed back to the higher ground of Bwlch Cwm Brwynog and soon noticed a stile ahead and above. This got me easily to the paths above Llyn Ffynnon-y-Gwas - the Snowdon Ranger path below and a clear path following the fence up to Moel Cynghorion. From there on I followed the obvious paths along the rest of the route to Moel Eilio. The views, in all directions along the route were stunning. [weather] Fine, sunny, warm, excellent visibility, slight breeze. - From the stile junction of the descent from Moel Cynghorion, at Bwlch Maesgwm, the route instructs you to follow the wall to the summit and its cairn. There is no wall to follow. There is a fence but the clear path quickly leaves the fence and leads quickly to the summit of Foel Goch. There is no cairn worth talking about - merely a few stones laid on the ground if you search for them. The rest of the route directions were fine and the paths along the ridge were all obvious.
