Pared y Cefn Hir and Bryn Brith from the obvious car park for the lake. It was misty and became rainy so I did not know what I was taking on. I still do not really but both were steep and involved hands - at least they did the way I went but I could not really see to choose a route.clivevilla18/08/2018

Hill #2 on RHW's completion walk - we even managed to uncover an OS bolt on the summit.DanMaisieBex18/02/2018

Pared and Brith revisited prior to my last 2 Welsh Mainland tumps. Bonus OS bolt found under cairn on slightly lower W summitRHW18/02/2018
With the RHW Wtc party. Having just joined the TUK site, seeing the bolt was very exciting. Would never have found it on my own.ngthack18/02/2018

From car park. Easy to get the wrong ridge. Summit no paths and lots of heather.destaylor17/03/2011

A beautiful 'Matterhorn shape' and lake. Ran uphill (KIMM training) working hard, nice circuit along ridge linking Pared y Cefn (unaware of its future bagging status at time) and onto the then sub-Marilyn of Bryn Birth. Back to car park below cliffs.Chris Pearson25/09/1999
