|After Clogwyn-brith, Mynydd-bychan & Allt y coed. Tried route from NE via woodland NW of Ty-uchaf. Can't say whether better or worse than other routes, suffice to say this top is not easily won! Agree with marktrengove - lovely wilderness..||TK||13/01/2019|
|From the footpath heading south past Cae Awr. Hard going over all sorts.||jrj||05/02/2018|
|Parked at picnic area at SH 76239 57597. Walked west along the A5 (pavement) to a bend before a bridge, taking a lane left. After 300m turned south-west on an old green lane up past Cae Awr, and Bryn Gefeiliau onto the open moor. Left the track at SH 75028 55766 to scale some small crags onto the plateau. Then the real work began through bogs, heather, bilberry and low-lying gorse, spiced up by three barbed wire fences to tackle. Hard work, but not as bad as other comments had led me to believe. Found a better route on my return, following a fence (not shown on the map) over Pt. 344m - only one barbed wire fence to tackle. Then took my outward route down, but used the winding forest track back to the car park. A great wilderness area. Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet.||marktrengove||04/07/2017|
|Parked at picnic area Cae'n y Coed just after Swallow falls. Followed the marked trail up through forest intending to use path marked on map to leave forest. Unfortunatly whilst on top forestry road couldn't locate this path or find an alternative way so made my way to western end of forest via the forestry road and used the footpath which comes up from Bryn Gefeilia. Then the hard work starts as per previous comments, deep heather, plenty of gorse and boggy. Will take you longer than you expect however good day today and the views all round were great.||Rob50||24/04/2016|
|Easy walk up from road on good tracks to their end at 750558 then terrible terrain all the way to and from the top. Horrendous rough 5'deep grass, gorse and heather covered climb then BWF and two more cross ridges. Fell several times in vegetation. A 5 hour epic. Worst hill I've been on for years. Ugh!||arranc||03/09/2015|
|Parked at Dolwyddelan. Decided to take this on the way onto Moel Siabod. Incredibly hard going ascent from the south east, although it was worth the effort for some fine views of Moel Siabod||AlunRees31||24/09/2014|

|Nice once reached, but previous comments seconded! Made heavy weather of this: decided to take in Allt y Coed (but gave up) and approach to Cribau from SE is heavy going; NB gorse and floating bog immediately S of summit - keep R if you do go that way. From NW presumably least-worst. NB no feasible parking on yellow road from SW except perhaps some narrow passing places.||RHW||13/07/2014|
|There are 2 cairned summits, the northernmost is the higher.
The hill is defended by bogs, thigh high sedge and heather||DC11main||22/09/2012|
