Start by taking the East Ridge of Pen yr Ole Wen including a short gully. More easy scrambling is to be found by following the ridge on to Carnedd Dafydd, Carnedd Llewely and Pen yr Helgi Du.

eddbeale 17 Nov, 2018 - Parked in the layby at Glan Dena, walked up Afon Lloer to Clogwyn Mawr, then left up Pen-Yr-Ole Wen. Followed ridge path to Carnedd Dafydd and then Cefn Ysgolion Duon and Bwlch Cyfryw-Drum. Contoured north west before summit of Carnedd Llewelyn (at ~950m) to meet ridge to Yr Elen. From Yr Elen summit, returned along ridge path to Carnedd Llewelyn summit. Descended via Penywaun-wen and then ascended to Pen Yr Helgi Du via Bwlch Eryl Farchog. Long descent along Y Braich ridge, then across canal at footbridge and down via the bridleway to the road. Crossed over the road and the bridleway to the south of the A5 back to the van.
