Gerald Murphy summited Manod Mawr on March 3rd, 2013 [from/via/route] This description relates to two separate walks. Manod Mawr has two distinct tops sparated by a large slate quarry. I walked Manod Mawr (North Top) (658m) on 27 February, 2013 then, on 3rd March, 2013' Manod Mawr (661m) plus Manod Bach (511m). For Manod Mawr(North Top) I caught a bus (1B) from Blaenau Ffestiniog to the stop before Llan Ffestiniog. The stop is near a layby on the same side as the bus stop. I then took the path from the bus stop leading through some houses away from the layby onto a clear path into Cwm Teigl. I followed the path to Cwt y Bugail slate quarry (still operational at this time). I then took a path to the left towards Llyn Newydd but, at the County Boundary bridge I followed the fence to a ladder stile which led me directly to the cairn. By now I was in thickl fog at the edge of the quarry so I followed the quarry edge to my right and eventually reached Llyn Du Bach. This is not the Llyn du Bach near Gamallt! Now in sunlight, I could see a way back following Afon du Bach to the miners' incline at Bethania district of Blaenau. I descended this to the A470 road back to Blaenau. Not many days later I walked back to Bethania and, across the road from the small Greek Orthodox church, I climbed over an old stile to gain access to the miners' incline. This leads to a col between Manod Mawr and m Manod Bach and to Llyn Manod which lies beneath and between the two hills. I first climbed Manod Mawr before descending and climbing Manod Bach which has a couple of cairns. I returned the way I came. [with] alone (both times) [weather] For North Top - it was foggy and freezing from just below Cwt y Bugail. Even the barbs of the fencing wore long fingers of ice and Llyn du Bach was partially frozen over. For North Top - it was cold but sunny with a light wind only.
