Parking space for a few cars at SJ 118 306. Round of Mynydd Tarw, Foel Wen, Cadair Bronwen, Moel yr Henfaes, Cadair Berwyn, Moel Sych, Post Gwyn, Moel Poethion, Godor. Descended through fields to track at SJ 110 302. Couple of farmers by the sheepfold didn't seem unduly concerned by our presence.Geoff Briggs01/09/2019
Former official summit of Cadair Berwyn now replaced by the rocky outcrop which is 3m higher. The trig point at this location is in the incorrect spot and needs relocating. Views of Cadair Bronwen in the distant.giant_hiker03/08/2019

Off for a full day hike with a group of friends from Shrewsbury. Parked at the Pistyll Rhaeadr carpark, and a long slow walk up the Nant y Llyn valley. Steep climb up the ridge of Craig y Llyn overlooking Llyn Lluncaws, then a march along the top to bag both Cadair Berwyns, old and new. Easy bagging of Moel Sych on the way back down to Pistyll Rhaeadr across Trum Felen. 700 metre ascents, 7 miles walking, just over 6 hours (but with a big group of children).Cangarwbach19/04/2019

From Llandrillo via Cadair Berwyn on a very hot day. Out and back to Moel Sych then back along the ridge to a wild camp on Bronwen. Gorgeous walking along the escarpment but the top isn't a patch on the main peak.Jake99405/05/2018
From Moel Sych as part of ridge; very windy, low cloud and driving rain on return.MichaelF21/11/2017

Worst I've ever felt up here, after a 15 mole slog, much in the dank fog, wind and rain. Love cadair Berwyn though!tumpawumpa12/04/2017
thers not alot of parking for this walk as anne and john say in there book THE MOUNTAINS OF ENGLAND AND WALES very hard under foot as it was cold and had been snowing this is a boggy walk so my advise is do it in the hight of winter or summer as you will get wetDarren-44310/02/2017
Second ascentPeteF30/12/2016
Solo walk. Start/finish in Tyn-y-Ffridd. Climbed Mynydd Tarw, Foel Wen, Tomle, Cadair Berwyn (both tops), Moel Sych, Moel yr Ewig and Godor ... basically Nuttall route minus Cadair Bronwen. 5 hours. Weather horrendous at times ... squally showers, gales, cold, but sunny spells in afternoon. A good walk; few paths and boggy in places but the escarpment of the main ridge is impressive, especially view of Llyn Lluncaws. Cadair Berwyn is really a forgotten mountain of Wales, despite its height ... saw nobody all day!jamessteel10022/12/2016
Solo walk during a weekend trip to Llangollen for a friend's Birthday. Tyn-y-ffridd - Godor - along Nuttalls to Cadair Berwyn - north as far as Moel yr Henfaes - back to Cadair Bronwen - over Tomle ridge - back to Tyn-y-ffridd. Amazing weather with a cloud inversion.AGWilliamson17/12/2016
