TP4867 - Moel Wyn
16th Mar 2014 13:30 by Lathama
A slog up to the summit, to be rewarded with low cloud and mist in spite of a sunny start. A substantial square slate construction with asphalt plug replacement. Some graffiti on the slates but this does not in general deter from what would be a great spot on a clear day. Must footfall erosion around pillar. Sight holes all closed.

A lovely walk in the sunshine today up Cnicht and then across to Moelwyn Mawr

Nuttall walk 5.3 on a good September day. Lovely views today but prefer Cnicht to Moelwyn Mawr.

I had a great walk up that started with sunshine from Tanygrisiau, however all blue sky eluded me by the time I reached the summit. The cloud was so dense in fact that I was a bit concerned about finding the path down to Croesor. I needn't have worried though and was soon down into the village. I took the bridleway northwest there, and then followed the road through Blaen Nanmor to Bethania. All in good time to catch the Sherpa bus home.

The name for this should be 'Moelwyn Mawr'. I hiked a loop from Croesor, first climbing Cnicht then across to Moelwyn Mawr.

Bagged on a circular walk from Tanygrisiau. We were lucky with the weather and the views were tremendous today.

Huffed and puffed my way to the top having got a bit out of condition over winter. Met champion trigger Rob on a nearby peak. An excellent day for walking - cold clear and no wind.

Blustery day. Walked up from Croesor on a Moelwyn round. More scratched graffiti than ever including 3 PARA MID NIGHT. Most recent of four visits, first on 25/08/1980

Sturdy slate pillar [some graffiti etched on]. Unusually, no open sighting holes. Asphalt plug. Public. Access Land. Snowdonia National Park. A circuit of the Moelwyns, from Croesor or Tanygrisiau, makes one of the finest outings in Wales. Trig on lofty summit of Moelwyn Mawr. A real mountain trig.

Superbly solid looking trig built with local slate. Disfigured with 3 PARA (and other) graffiti.

Supporting Alan Lucker on his Paddy Buckley Round, which he completed on 23h12m. He started at Nantmor 6pm yesterday, did the Hebog and Snowdon sections in thick mist, slippery Glyders in the rain, Carneddau mostly dry, Siabod thru to Moel Meirch in pouring rain. By the Moelwyns the weather had at last cleared up - great run off Cnicht back to Nantmor rounded off a memorable day! The Paddy involves 60+ miles, 27,000+ feet of ascent. (I just did the Snowdon section and this last section).

The slate built pillar is sited on an exposed grassy mountain; its foundations are exposed by a couple of inches, it has an asphalt plug and FB S8450. I parked at Tanygrisau, followed the road to Stwlan Dam, trudged up to Bwlch Stwlan, scrambled up on to Craigysgafn and finally approached Moelwyn Mawr from the southeast. Despite the morning murkiness the pillar had breathtaking views from the estuary at Porthmadog in the west to numerous peaks and upland lakes in other directions. My return took me northeast to the quarries and then east to the quarry at Wrysgan where a path goes down the tip to the Afon Cwmorthin and back to Tanygrisau. An easier route there and back would probably be to use the disused incline that rises from the Stwlan road to Wrysgan.

Has there really been noone up here in the past 11 months? A day of thick dry cloud with huge amounts of surface water on the Cwm Croesor Round. Top 6 of 7 for the day but the only trig. Condition unchanged but remembered the plug has been filled in this time

Highest of 5 snow covered tops climbed from Tanygrisau. Trig itself remains in very good condition even it well etched with visitors names on the slate. As well as the Tar plug it is also missing it hooking points. Frustratingly the snowshowers refused to lift until after I left the summit and was almost back to the car

Pillar is in good condition, being repointed in places to keep in good condition. There is no sighting holes, although these could of be covered over when it was repaired. The Plug is made of tar. This pillar is actually at the Summit of Moelwyn Mawr - Large Snow-Hill in english. This is one of my local hills, so been there around 10 times, this begin the latest visit. My first recorded visit there, was 8-8-1999 but i think i had been there before then. See my photo for the FB number, S8450.

Visited on the "Nuttall" Cnicht and the Moelwyns walk (5.3). In my view Cnicht is the finest mountain in the whole of Wales. Moel Wyn is also known as Moelwyn Mawr.

Set off from Car Park at foot of Dam Road at 0915. Contoured round re-entrant from S end of dam wall to reach saddle S of summit. Good scramble over subsidiary peak & ridge to trig. Brilliant all round views from top, especially of Porthmadog & the estuary. Having reached peak at 1030, ran down in 30 mins to car - great walk!
25th Jun 1996 14:51 by Crazy
Mainly for the exercise as the thick morning hill cloud has rendered the view obsolete and also caught me out as I missed my junction on the descent. A tough slog up to Llyn Stwlan from the foot of the Nant Ddu on the Cambrian Way. Good thing the trig was here so I knew I was at the summit.

One of several visits to this fine top on the southern side of the main Snowdonia hills over the years; this time it was a round of Cwm Croesor with some of the guys from work.

rustic column (stones not cement). crampons used following someone else's footprints, along mine track to old tramway crossing. last 200 yards on exposed ridge with snow cornices. views of dark storm clouds - snow falling in fields we had just left. Runner in shorts from B F direction! Patricia wrote "Happy Birthday" to herself in snow.
