With Val. Showers. From car park ay Cae Clyd. Followed path to Llyn y Manod then track climbing diagonally across hillside to old quarries. Up to summit from the north. Very interesting views of all the slate quarries. An enjoyable walk.mike.hoult10/08/2018

great views. be careful of the quarryAristotle Chip12/01/2018
A great walk from Cae Clyd car park. At Bron Manod, I eschewed the footpath in favour of the track leading up and over a bridge to some stone sheds, then followed nice dry ATV tracks across the fields, hopping over gates and then a last openable gate out onto the open hill. Up alongside a BWF, which I climbed on the way up, but there's a gate closer to Llyn y Manod, and a dry track linking to the nice track slanting up the hillside. Up a nice wide ridge onto the summit plateau, and an easy stroll thereafter to the top. Nice soft snow to make the climb most enjoyable. Good views.Gill26/11/2017
From north top descending to quarry road and then east to disused tip and sw to summit. Too much activity in the quarry to risk a short cut.jrj26/09/2017
THERE IS NO PARKING BEYOND THE BIG CAR PARK AT CAE CLYD, so park here, and avoid a twenty bzillion point turn near the end of the track. Public FPs to Llyn y Manod, then lovely diagonal track up and round hill to quarry due N of summit. S, steep at first then easier to summit. Low cloud so saw nothing. Onward to the north top.Minto11/06/2017
With CH, KF, MH, in thick mist. Easy to park where the inclines come down in Bethania. Followed the fascinating inclines up to Graig-ddu Quarry, then things got interesting. Tried to find the track that emerges from the SW edge of the quarry, but the track we were on swung right round to a bulldozed junction near Llyn Pysgod. Eventually a phone GPS saved the day giving us a relatively straightforward bearing to the summit. Then tried to come straight down the W slope to the lake path. Not recommended - steep, rocky, laborious!Mark Jackson30/05/2017
