Pistyll Rhaeadr, Craig Rhiwarth, Glan-Hafon, return.ijpowell12/07/2019
As in 2018, a mid Wales May BH weekend with the highest hill a Tump! Really good walk from Tan-y-pistyll- up by the rim of Craig y Mwn, down through the quarries, enjoying the sprawling slopes to the summit in dry conditions. Evidently popular: like most, we had lunch on the rocky top after visiting the grassy true summit ca.20 cm higher. Finished along the valley from the quarries along a RoW that looks like and old quarry railway track bed, a delight, leading right to Pistyll Rhaedr. With Petepwheeler06/05/2019
A nice jaunt out and back from Llangynog. Visited current summit, the trig and the rocky outcrop with the Stoneman.Eddie24/08/2018
13.2 mile walk from Pistyll Rhaeadr, climbed up path by Nant Y Llyn then followed dried up stream onto the ridge (very rough), went out and back to Godor, then followed ridge over Moel Yr Ewig and lovely trail up face of Cadair Berwyn above the almost dried up tarn, joined ridge up to Cadair Berwyn summit (2nd time) and onto along to Moel Sych (2nd time), then descended path south onto Trum Felen ridge, then cut down the side on grass to footbridge over Afon Disgynfa, climbed on grass then hideous heather to Post Gwyn, then followed ridge pathless but fairly easy terrain all the way to Glan-Hafon (have to cross several fences on ridge one with barbed wire), then descended down lane and path to Pistyll Rhaeadr. Started walk in cloud, but got sunnier as the day went on and very hot, storm clouds towards end, didn't see anyone throughout: 6hrs 35.DanTrig13/07/2018
From Post Gwyn. Visited the unusual cairn as well as the trig. Had a long lie down in the sun by the cairn as it was a lovely sunny day and the views were wonderful. Then down to the falls for a pot of tea.Herbert Anchovy24/06/2018
