Yr Wylorn and Garreg Lwyd from parking to south.rhalstead27/05/2017
I too parked at the wind farm entrance to NW and went up the track then along the ridge. It was so still today the blades were not turning so that's maybe why your Sunday dinner took a bit longer to cook than usual.Father Ted02/04/2017
From Dolhefa to NW. Might be better to access from SE to avoid wind farm and cutting across too many farmer's fields.twg2714/02/2017
A quicky on the way home from a Snowdon trip: parked at Dolhelfa to NW, up track then along ridgeline to the top.Cas-gwent26/05/2016
With Trefor. Parked near entrance to wind farm and followed wind farm access track. Spur headed SW towards summit then on over rough ground to summit. Snow on ground following heavy shower earlier in the day.mike.hoult29/04/2016
Walked up from gate to wind farm at Dolhelfa-ganol on A470. Operated SOTA from the summit.G4OBK (Phil)08/04/2016
5/8 Fifth of Eight on a misty day (Cefn Llethywel/Drysgol/Craig Gellidywyll/Bryn Titli/Garreg Llwyd/Yr Wylorn/Foel/Cwmcringlyn Bank)Fergalh12/03/2016
Parked at the windfarm entrance opposite Dolgelfa Ganol. Theres a no parking sign on the one side..so i parked on the otherside. Loads of space. Followed stone track up to noisy turbines. Windy. Passed right under the 2nd one. A tad unnerving. Took track towards top then picked up sheeptrods pretty much to summit. New b/wire fence. Very windy and cold. Good views though not a fan of the turbines.headed straight for the first turbine on return. Short frosted grass.stig_nest16/02/2016
Parked on the wide part of the road at 963720. Up the track NE of parking spot up to the house at 962721 and continued up the ROW to the summit. On the way back there is a path back to the road on the NE side of the Marcheini Fawr which I wanted to explore but time was pressing.mindlessflogger20/06/2015
From Gilfach Nature Reserve, via v good track up east side of the range to Bryn Titli. Skeleton of the horse (with a startled expression?) still there.dicky05/04/2015
Parked by the locked gate of the access road to the wind farm (SN928739) NE up access road & then SE along track before easy walking across moorland to summit. (PM,CM)gerrybowes27/10/2014
Parked at the junction of the service road for the turbines and the A470. Just over one hour return with GB and CM.bolton27/10/2014
With PM & GBCJM27/10/2014
Parked close to bridge at 921738. Up service road to wind farm, turned away for Marilyn summit. This bit over, we had a good walk. Quickly picked up a good path down to Gilfach, diverted to Y Wylorn 475m for best viewpoint of day, enjoyed cake and seeing pied flycatchers, redstarts at Gilfach then onto Gamallt, a sub-Marilyn and the most satisfying climb of the day. Some barbed wire had to be negotiated on its traverse to a fp on its S side. Return via fb at 956697 almost prevented by bridge closure for repair. Check it's been done! Luckily we could ford the river- trainers for the walk on the delightful, quiet, but tarmac road were doubly useful. With brother, Pete. Fine, full day-walk in a lovely part of the Wye Valley.pwheeler05/05/2013
easy walk from the col north of the top. Look out for the sceleton of a big dead horse near the top.tallblond18/11/2012
First of 6M's on bagger trip to Builth w Jenx. Parked at road end of windfarm track and gained easily higher ground, straightforward walk to top. Cut back down more directly to start.nordicstar17/11/2012
Short walk up wind farm access track of A470, said no parking here but I did as plenty of space, up and down in an hour on a rather grey, dry morning with limited views from clear summit.Dugswell217/03/2010
SN9420273333Anton07/03/2010
Left car by main road at 945725 (13:05) and walked up zig-zag track to farm. Steeply up through yard and followed fence up toward col; branched off just before along ridge to top. Tiny cairn. Very hot day. Finished 14:20. dbb14/06/2009
Previous attempt was inconclusive as the top was shrouded in fog and I was not sure if I had been at the highest point. Electric fence just before the top was switched on although not very powerful.clivevilla12/11/2008
From NW. Good track. Top seems to be the little rocky outcrop. May be higher 20 or 30m away but 2 llamas and youngster were in the way. Was a bit of a surprise seeing them. The male walked my way mildly agressive so I cleared off!destaylor15/09/2008
With: hb sb ab; Walked up the windfarm access track from Dolhelfa by A470. Then followed bits of track and ridge up to the summit. We returned by the same route.Ian Baines03/09/2008
Parked on A470 at start of track to Bryn Titli wind farm. Followed this to top, then SE along track then grass to highest point which appeared to be a few rocks poking through rough grass.Aye Jimmy15/05/2008
A short stiff pull up from the A470. Counted the wind turbines on the top (22 I made it) and then dropped down by fence.signyred13/11/2007
(date approx) Parked at S end of Cefn Cenarth. Used track, RoW, track, RoW to reach summit. This is the walk which made me resolve to carry a piece of leather to protect myself when straddling barbed-wire fences.david.carreg01/05/2007
From Dolhelfa. Garreg Lwyd manages a little bit of dignity off the track.Eddie13/06/2006
Parked to W by access road to windfarm. Followed track to wind mills then made b-line for top over barbwire fence. Wind mills impressive, views less so but still a good hill.robphys28/03/2005
Ascended from the south via Yr Wylorn.JohnW18/08/2004

Parked on the A470 and walked up to the wind farm. Then took the path to the SE before cutting up to the summit. Strangely just before the top all the turbines ceased to turn.garyhoney18/02/2002
Easy afternoon walk from the carpark on the Marteg bendRhayader_wander10/02/2001
11am on Rembrance Sunday- a poignant quiet place to remember and to give thanks. 8 marilyns solo in mid-Wales, drive and running by 8.20am. Day after Yossi Brain -mountain guide memorial in Walsall & night in bunkhouse at PYB. calm, damp with damp cloud higher up.Chris Pearson14/11/1999
On works road then over grass and deep heather to top. 22 turbines to N and a larger wind farm to NE.arranc07/02/1999
