After Cribin Fawr, fine views of Cader.DanMaisieBex03/08/2019
Parked at Bwlch Oerddrws - Cloddfa Gwanas - Waen-oer then followed the grassy ridge fences to Maesglase (a grassy giant). Impressive and quiet. Returned retracing our steps. Coffee and bara-brith at Cross Foxes as a treat at the end.briandavies25/09/2018
Nuttall Walk. First summit of the day. 3hrs from the start. A very hot day., but the forest provided lots of shade. With Ann as always.Malcvolm26/06/2018

Fresh snow had fallen in the night which made this hard going. Parked in the lay-by on the A487 which is popular for walkers going up Cadair Idris. Took the path that crossed the cyclepath (that looks like a great cycle) and got my walking sticks out for the first time ever. Couldn't find the path because of the snow so I made my own way up. At the top, walked along the edge of the wood to the summit. Good views at the top as the cloud base was quite high. Came back the same way. Found the proper path on the way down from the woods but it was very slippy and I had to do a “controlled descent” on the way down on my bum a couple of times.tsharp22/03/2017

12 Mile walk from top of pass, followed good path onto Cribin Fawr and its unmarked summit, then down and steeply up onto Waun-Oer and its trig, back onto Cribin Fawr, down fenceline and along hillside path to Mynydd Dolgoeds featureless summit, then nice ridge walk onto another two featureless summits, Craig Portas and its East Top, then onto the big bulk of Maesglase to its cairned top, we then walked back to Cribin Fawr and down to the pass, after a break, steeply ascended Pen Ochr Y Bwlch and its unmarked top, then up onto Pen Y Brynfforchog where we tried to rebuild the fallen down pile of stones on top, returned to the pass, mostly sunny with the odd cloud banks touching the surrounding summitsDanTrig06/07/2016
On a backpack. Camped just under summit near a small tarn which was my water supply. Great top, lovely views. Could see the pub at Cross Foxes from the tent!mick04/05/2016

Via Cribbin Fawr avoiding low flying jets, but only just.Campbell Singer16/03/2016
Wind so strong could not hold camera to take photo. Hung on to trig to log on TP-UK and had to make do with snap on mobile. 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
With Penda, from car park on A470. CF to W to M and back. Long flog over boggy ground on way to M. 1230-1715. Trip enlivened by lots of Red Kites. Only saw one other person in distance.beorwulf19/09/2015
same day as Maesglase, ascent from Bwlch Oerddrws to Waun Oer then back and over Craig Portas ridge to MaesglaseDewi Prysor29/06/2015
After the over-complicated and difficult route taken to get onto the ridge, this was a breeze despite the very waterlogged ground. The stone outcrop below the trig would be the only dry ground for some miles. Onwards to Cribin Fawr.thesweetcheat09/05/2015
