Gerald Murphy summited on May 5th, 2012 [from/via/route] cw115 walked from the Footpath sign at the gate near the summit of the Crimea Pass (A470). [with] alone [weather] variable - dry and warm withsunshine then cloud.Later darker, colder, cloudier with flakes of snow. Finally warm and sunny agin with light cloud. - This (very) boggy walk was a bit of a marathon. After Iwerddon (Allt Fawr), Allt Fawr itself and Moel Druman I continued to Ysgafell Wen as per cw115 but then took my first detour. I walked back via Llyn y Adar up the North Ridge of Cnicht to it's summit. The views across towards Snowdon were my reward. This first leg took me 4 hours. I then made an unintended detour - I mistook the summit of Moel Meirch for what I assumed would be Ysgafell Wen North Top. Anyway it was a pleasant diversion. I then realised that the summit was completely wrong in relation to nearby Siabod. Back to the map! I quickly found my way back on track to Ysgafell Wen North Top and Far North Top. The downhill walk from there was steep - as stated in the directions but I failed completely to find Moel Fleddiau (the ruined farmhouse) - at least, not within 1.5km of Ysgafell Wen far North Top. I did find some ruins and Moel Lledr but, when I got to the final hill, Moel Dyrnogydd I decided to walk instead, via the clear track, to Roman Bridge via Blaenau Dolwydellan. My wife picked me up at the station.
