From Glyntawe via Garreg Las, a route through limestone badlands and remote moorland. Some fine limestone tops then, encountering a Merlin on the way, onto the sweeping sandstone scarps and ridges including the beautiful summit ridges of the Marilyn top. Relatively straightforward way back, fine ridge over Fan Hir- a big walk in both its atmosphere and distance (17 miles) with brother Pete. 2nd visit to Fan Brycheiniog and Fan Hir.pwheeler06/04/1997

Cambrian Way. Very pleased as I walked on to see the head of the Usk where it ought to be! And good to see Dave coming to meet me as I walked into Myddfai, though he then had to go home to recuperate for a week or so. Also visited on 13 April 2002; almost certainly to cairn as well as trig point on both occasions.ruthatlast03/06/1993
Both the Trig point and cairn to the North visited.isabelle22/07/1992
