Gerald Murphy scaled 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 & 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 & soon noticed a stile ahead & above. This got me easily to the paths above Llyn Ffynnon-y-Gwas - the Snowdon Ranger path below & 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 & its cairn. There is no wall to follow. There is a fence but the clear path quickly leaves the fence & 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 & the paths along the ridge were all obvious.
