Continuation of walk from Mynydd Cwmeiddew. Took track west for several hundred metres, then a boggy path up north-west to the summit. Returned the same way. Solo.marktrengove17/12/2016
Godre Fynydd, Mynydd Cwneiddew, Ceiswyn and Mynydd Fron Fraith. Parked in layby on A487, walked half a mile south down the road then east across a field to avoid the grumpy sign on the entrance to the forest track. At the top of the field I worked my way up tracks to near the first top and then made it up as I went along really.clivevilla20/09/2016

From layby on A487 up the ROW and along the ridge, then through the forest taking four Deweys. Great views of Cadhair. Return by forest track on east side. Surprised to see tarmac on the byeway over the pass.SS31/05/2014
The start of my last day of this particular Hillwalking adventure. I caught a bus from Machynlleth to the Minffordd hotel and after a drink I headed up the very steep slopes, through some bluebells and then onto the bilberry and heather-clad flora climbing over two fences in the process. I was shocked at how steep this hill was and had several breathers before getting onto the fenceline to find the summit. I freed a sheep that had caught itself in the fence and had to pull each individual tuft of wool out to free it and was disappointed that i didnt get even a Baaaa to say Thankyou! I followed the fenceline down to the A487. Great views of the Magnificence of the Cader Idris massif.It doesnt appear that many people take the direct route up. I can understand why!Dazingdale09/05/2014
As DG and MR. Good track.destaylor08/10/2012
There is another hillock 10m away which seemed as high at GR-SH 74561 10888.Just in case. With andrew brown.DARRENG26/08/2012
Ignored private signs at SH734102. Anything to avoid another gloomy walk through a plantation or any pine thrashing, rather than enjoy the evening sunshine. Track takes you steeply half way there.Martin R31/08/2011
