Fronllwyd & Carnedd y Filiast with Rufus. Parked just north of Tai Newyddion on the opposite side of the road where you can fit a couple of vehicles against the fence. Followed road and then track NNW to gate by afon Cwm ceunant where a sheep track takes you alongside the stream to around 400m and switches back N. Another switchback around 500m gains the crest of the ridge and then the summit of Fron Llwydd. Continued directly to Carnedd y Filiast and descended NE along a sheep track close to the edge of the upper Cwm ceunant and dropped down directly to the road.jacobrichmond13/02/2023

From Nant Peris down the road to Gwastadnant to pick up the path to Y Garn. We then traversed to Foel Goch followed by Mynydd Perfedd. We then take the ridge to Carnedd y Filiast 821 m and its subsidiary peak of Y Fronllwyd 720 m. We then took the path above the access tunnel to the power station at the head of the reservoir to ascend Elidir Fawr. This is a very steep path not shown on maps. We set out in fog and rain and this transformed into a sunny day with beautiful views of Snowdon.Lazylizzie26/05/2019

From y garnemily28/08/2016
25 years ago I was a keen and very fit cyclist. Now I am not. So imagine the pain I endured cycling on an mtb up to Marchlyn Mawr from Bangor train station. Theres a very clear path up the hill from the top fork off the hydro road and the bouldery summit easily attained. A very special view which gives one of the better faces of Elidir Fawr. Return same way and the descent a darn sight quicker than the uphill slog. Off to final Welsh Nuttall (Llechog) via Dinorwic quarry.stig_nest23/08/2016
