From ponderosa. Much better views that when I first did moel y faen. Hot and sweaty.. steep in places. Too hot to go over to Moel morfydd. Pleasant walk though.Laura.W13/05/2019
Very steep climb up a gravelly path. Exposed summit with cairn, highest point of this line of hills. Extremely steep descent over other side, hiking poles would be advisablegiant_hiker28/04/2019
