The scramble starts above Llech Ddu. Gain it by ascending into Cwmglas Bach then cutting back left along a ramp to arrive above the crag. From here simply follow the ridge up. Some obstacles can be avoided. The ridge soon merges with the summit slopes. Walk up these to reach the top of Carnedd Dafydd

Misha 14 Jun Solo rpt Really nice and plenty of short techy sections if taking in all the difficulties. Was thinking about how I would short rope everything. Reckon it would go with short steps most of the way and occasional longer sections with rope round a spike. Last steep section is the longest and there are no spikes for another 10m so would need to drop a few coils or build a belay just above the steep bit. Otherwise should go without using any gear. Carried on in a loop round Ysgolion Duon and back to Bethesda, doing a bit of nav practice en route. Had done beige.

Gerry_Doncaster 14 Aug, 2016 Solo Finally did this one after years of putting it off due to the long walk in and I have to say I was a bit disappointed. Quite scrappy to begin with but it certainly gets a lot better after the sloping slab if you take everything direct. Some nice moves and decent positions too. Overall though I wouldn't rate it as a classic especially considering the complete lack of continuations or link ups. One star only, I'd say.

Oujmik ?Jun, 2011 Solo Fog cleared just in time to make an ascent worthwhile. Roped up and used a combination of moving together and quick spike/direct belays to reassure nervous partner and keep us safe. Loads of nice rock on the crest, with some great exposure and some technical challenges without ever being too serious.
