Melfyn Parry walked up on May 15th, 2022 [from/via/route] Start point is car park in Bethesda, route taken involved walking around Moelwyn Faban, then up LLefn. Walked on path around Y Gyrn & followed this across to Drosgl. Took path around Drosgl up towards Bera Bach & ascended summit from South side. Retraced steps & then walked across heathland to ascend summit of Bera Mawr. This was a good short scramble & the two monoliths do resemble Adam & Eve on Tryfan. Too windy to try anything heroic so retraced steps to base & then followed path around base of Bera Bach to follow path down over Gyrn Wigau before returning to carpark via Gerlan. [with] On my own [weather] Great initially, very warm. Wind picked up about 11am so added a layer. Spots of rain towards the end but a great day out. - Could have added peaks of Y Gyrn & Drosgl but have done these before so saved my energy for the Bera's. 15km walk today.
