From Llandrillo via Cadair Berwyn on a very hot day. Out and back to Moel Sych then back along the ridge to a wild camp on Bronwen. Gorgeous walking along the escarpment but the top isn't a patch on the main peak.Jake99405/05/2018

Worst I've ever felt up here, after a 15 mole slog, much in the dank fog, wind and rain. Love cadair Berwyn though!tumpawumpa12/04/2017
thers not alot of parking for this walk as anne and john say in there book THE MOUNTAINS OF ENGLAND AND WALES very hard under foot as it was cold and had been snowing this is a boggy walk so my advise is do it in the hight of winter or summer as you will get wetDarren-44310/02/2017
Second ascentPeteF30/12/2016
Solo walk. Start/finish in Tyn-y-Ffridd. Climbed Mynydd Tarw, Foel Wen, Tomle, Cadair Berwyn (both tops), Moel Sych, Moel yr Ewig and Godor ... basically Nuttall route minus Cadair Bronwen. 5 hours. Weather horrendous at times ... squally showers, gales, cold, but sunny spells in afternoon. A good walk; few paths and boggy in places but the escarpment of the main ridge is impressive, especially view of Llyn Lluncaws. Cadair Berwyn is really a forgotten mountain of Wales, despite its height ... saw nobody all day!jamessteel10022/12/2016
Solo walk during a weekend trip to Llangollen for a friend's Birthday. Tyn-y-ffridd - Godor - along Nuttalls to Cadair Berwyn - north as far as Moel yr Henfaes - back to Cadair Bronwen - over Tomle ridge - back to Tyn-y-ffridd. Amazing weather with a cloud inversion.AGWilliamson17/12/2016

A big day for me today. My last 10 Nuttalls (excl. Pillar Rock). Walked with Chris. Parking for 3 cars by the river off the road down from the phone box. Nuttall route plus detour to Moel Poethion. Should have known better than to hope for sunshine on this special day. At least the tops were clear and the showers intermittent. Excellent walk and not demanding.ijpowell01/08/2014

Climbed as part of a North to South traverse of the Berwyn range on a long walk from Llandrillo to Llangynog; Reached summit just after climbing Tomle and past the boundary. The Rocky edges on Cadair Berwyn are remarkable so suggest keeping fairly close to the edge if you like great views but be aware of the wind. Next destination, the real top!Dazingdale05/05/2014
With Lindsay and Frank. Nuttalls walk 7.2 - eleven new Nuttalls bagged. Lovely day - perfect conditions.Crib Goch24/04/2014
