P on handy grass verge at approx 830152. Good track to start - main height gain on very overgrown path - then ok incipient path in moorland. Visited Maesglase first, then Maen Du - good views down to A470.ger26/09/2018

Missed this one when doing the Nuttall walk, so a quick up and down from the lay-by at SH826163 to complete Bridge and Buxton/Lewis lists. Steep but no difficulties.mae31/05/2017

With Martin, Lindsay & Steve and starting from parking spot on A470 used Martin's route to take in Cribin Fawr, Waun-oer, Craig Portas, Craig Portas East Top finishing on Maesglase.knarf10/04/2016
Clearly lower than main Nuttal summit. Heavy morning rain slow to clear replaced by gradually clearing skies with good visibility. Strong wind became stronger almost blowing me off my feet on many occasions. Parked in car park near 363m spot height on A470. Cribin Fawr->Waun-oer->Craig Portas->Craig Portas East Top->Maesglase->Maesglase (old GR) - Maen Du. Only 7.83 miles but comparatively a lot of ascent at 964m. No wonder felt tired on final walk back to van along A470 from Penantigi Isaf. Better to park near milepost to reduce final walk back to van.SteveSmith09/03/2016
