|Parking area by dam at 871636 - Along RoW for a few yards & then steep climb up grass slope - As slope becomes less steep, picked up an ATV track which can be followed to within 70yd of unmarked summit. Continued to Craig Dyfnant. (PM)||gerrybowes||30/01/2018|

|Pathless walk over Craig Fawr and Craig Dyfnant from Parking at Dam.||rhalstead||23/12/2017|
|We parked up in the car park near Nantgwyllt Church, walked round the reservoir for a while before heading up to the Cwm Elan mines and on up Nant Methan to Craig Dyfnant then across to Craig Fawr.
Very rough tussock terrain on top.||Neolith||08/10/2017|
|Parked at Claerwen Reservoir by the dam and took the good track along the north bank. Left this at 842660 and went across mainly pathless terrain to the summit of Llethr Hir. Difficult boggy and tussocky so tried to return to 842660 a lower route which was better to start but then got even worse. Not exactly an easy stroll. Returned along track and left it on path at 883652 for a short way before leaving it and heading straight for the summit of Craig Dyfnant. A little easier but still not easy. Then headed for Craig Fawr keeping a little left to reduce the amount of descent into the valley before striking out for the summit with a shortish final descent back to the track near the car park. 4 1/2 hours.||clivevilla||03/10/2017|
|Spent day walking a few hills and benchmarking in the valley below.||Dusty||09/04/2017|
|Parked by the reservoir, plenty of space. Good warm up to summit of Craig Fawr. Quite steep at start. Took in all the other points mentioned as well. Walked (staggered) across to Craig Dyfnant and all other points. Took a route round top of Nant y Gadair. Thought about taking in Priddellau but as the going was rough dropped down the Nant y Gadair to the ruins shown on 1:25000. Walked down good track from there to its join with the reservoir track and on this back to car park. Generally rough with a few quod bike tracks and sheep trods. Rest trackless hummock grass. Hard going.||MikeM||05/07/2016|

|From Claerwen Reservoir (SN 87073 63631). A few paces along the east bank of the reservoir then a direct ascent to the summit.||david230201||07/06/2015|
|From dam straight up Craig Fawr then over tussocks and bog to Craig Dyfnant. Descent from latter to burn was made harder by wet slippery turf. Not hills to remember but this area has wild beauty.||SS||25/04/2015|
|Easy parking. Direct - zig-zag!||destaylor||26/07/2014|
|Part of a 3 day solo walk around the elan valley ticking of some dewey tops||steviet||07/05/2012|
|Start ~ 871635. Straight forward ascent. En route to Craig Dyfnant, with Wombourne.||steve hudson||27/10/2010|
|2/2 on day watershed from N quite boggy with long grass tiring. Summit again flat with 3 mounds claiming top spot I lean to the land SE of a greener knoll. From the summit look for a distinct gap in the forest on the SW skyline as a marker to the car||Rhayader_wander||18/02/2007|
