From layby off A496 near Tan-y-grisiau. 6th of 6 summits in clockwise circuit of the Moelwyns. Easy route continuing from Moel-yr-Hydd. Full view of the quarries from summit. Lleyn Peninsula finally cleared of most of the fog that had been sat there all morning so was able to see it.muzza206/07/2018

3/7. Didn't expect much of this hill but as the top is on the edge of a cliff you get fabulous bird eye views on to Cwmorthin. Descended down the slope from the col between here and Moel-yr hydd to the southern end of the lake and then on to Tanygrisiau and eventually the Oakley Arms, taking in a few Tumps on the way.Herbert Anchovy10/04/2015
similar route to previous poster - just with better spelling. this is a superb viewpoint. no cairn marking the top but the view over rhosydd to cnicht and the view the other way down cwmorthin make this worth the visit alone.stig_nest20/08/2014
Craig Stwlan, Molwyn Bach, Craigysgafn, Molwyn Mawr, Molwyn Mawr North Ridge, Moel-yr-ydd and Foel Ddu. Very low cloud and no visibility until end of walk. Must repeat in the sun as very nice terrain/route.fellowsa28/06/2014
