Nantlle Ridge hikeJPW16/06/2024
Nice peak with the Owain Glyndwr flag on top. From here I walked down to Nebo and got a taxi back to Rhyd DdduBuckleymon17/10/2023
1st of 10 hills on a 21km traverse from Pant-glas to Carmel, 1st via fields and gates to open access land then Ene then over a wall at 335m then again at 550m to reach summit area exploring NW top first then heading over to true summit. Misty and atmospheric conditions but improving with glimpses of sunlight starting to break through. Continuation to Garnedd Goch...Dazingdale29/09/2023

Final of three 'Nuttall walks' on the same day. Parked at 241 spot height and followed good and pleasant paths. Top is surprisingly jagged and rocky. Fine sea/sunset views.Mark Jackson25/11/2022

Started at start of track to the lake above Nebo. Good path all the way to the wall near the summit with high point just beyond. Numerous other high points, went out to the cairn a couple of hundred metres to the SE which looks almost as high.dickscroop22/12/2021
Turned right at Nebo. Parked by the lake. There's a footpath going to the summit, very straight forward, takes about an hour to go up, less to go down. It was wet so you can do it quicker on a dry day.Skarletk29/10/2021

Seventh of seven summits. Out and back from Rhyd-Ddu. Perfect weather for climbing. Bit of a trek out to this one especially with having to go all the way around but greeted by a weathered Cymru flag at the top. No surprise to see nobody on this section of the route.muzza222/06/2021

8.6 mile circular from road bend at Pant-Y-Gog, we tried to find path across Cors-Y-Llyn but saw no trace, also the signposts had been taken down, instead we walked towards Cwm Dulyn and followed parallel path by wall to another minor road then followed track footpaths to road and car park near Maen-Llwyd, the fiddly bit now done we headed along track and then up trail along edge of Clogwyn-Y-Cysgod up to lovely summit of Craig Cwm Silyn, from here we turned back and followed path up easily onto Garnedd-Goch with its half a trig, then we descended steeply to ROW and followed good trail onto Mynydd Graig Goch and its lovely rocky summit, crossing handy new ladder stile over wall by summit and easily descending back to Cwm Dulyn and car. Amazing clear and sunny conditions with good views, A few people about.DanTrig17/09/2020

A 13 mile walk using Nuttall's route the one change I would make is the return to Rhyd-Ddu from Craig Cwm Silyn its not that good and looked better et return to Mynydd Tal-y mignedd and follow the ridge down to the deserted quarry.WAYNE ROWLETT01/06/2019
