Christina Lander walked up on September 29th, 2018 [from/via/route] Bont Newydd (Abergwyngregin) - Drum - Foel Fras - Carnedd Gwenllian - Bera Bach - Drosgl - Aber Falls - Bont Newydd [with] Dick & Meg [weather] A fine, dry day but very windy on the tops. Plenty of sunny spells. - We struggled to find our way between Drosgl and Aber Falls. Crossing the river at the top of the falls was challenging!

Gerald Murphy hiked on July 24th, 2014 [from/via/route] Bethesda riverside car park, Gerlan, Gernwydd into Cwm Llafar but fording the Afon Llafar near the former dam. Then crossed soft ground (probably dangerous after wet weather) to Foel Fechan, up to Foel Ganol and Yr Elen before crossing the nice ridge to Carnedd Llywelyn. From there down and up to Foel Grach (including a quick peak in the Refuge Hut. On from there to Carnedd Gwenllian (formerly Carnedd Uchaf) and then finishing the outward leg at Foel Fras. i then doubled back towards Carnedd Gwennllian but before reaching the Cairn, took the path down to Yr Aryg, onto Bera Bach, Drosgl and lastly Grn Wigau before dropping down to Bethesda. [with] alone [weather] Lovely sunny day but see further details on my logs of the walks of the other peaks mentioned above. - 1. I can't really understand why Bera Bach is the "small" Bera when "big" Bera Mawr has a lower elevation and the relative heights of the two above the ridge seem so similar. 2. Descending from Grn Wigau was confusing. the path, which had been clear, suddenly seems to go off to the right - ie away from Bethesda and heading for different farms. Following my elevated clear sight of Bethesda and my start point, I eventually reached a wall headed down to Bethesda. On either side were gates and stiles. I made the mistake of choosing the one on he right - it took me to what seemed to be a dead end from which, by now quite tired, I had to climb back to the two gates. I now chose the stile on the left, fingers crossed that this would be a workable route back. It was correct and took me all the way back to Gernwydd and the road back to the car park.
