From Y Drum, the previous pleasant pastures suddenly became more awkward heather, but dry. Sizeable cairn on top. Descended heathery slopes to the W to regain track back to Rhos-y-maerdy.Aye Jimmy12/05/2018

10 hill circuit based around Cadiar Bronwen. Start and finish on a forestry track not far from Cynwyd. Fantastic, sunny Saturday with hardly anyone on the hills.BobHancock22/04/2017
Parked at 082398 up Welsh water gravel track after asking permission from Board men on site. Followed track to 093389 then west direct to summit. Dry but could be hard in wet weather. With Marli.bolton18/04/2017
Hmmm. My second top was supposed to be the tump north of ceriog forest. But the lane is now undriveable from the dee approach. So in a bit of a mood I drive into the forest for the tops I'm missing up here. Mood brightened when I found there was nothing to stop me driving all the way in ti the bridge over the Tristion. From here the Dewey top was easy picking. This top still required some heather battling though. Lovely top with a nice perspective of the big hills.stig_nest15/05/2016

From Cynwyd (River Dee in spate) up forestry track then direct climb to Moel yr Henfraes (Dewey) through rather damp heather. Onwards from there to the Hewitt and lunch at the memorial (sheep cropped slopes treacherous). Took track back to dry to dry feet and legs out. Good views all round.SS27/12/2015

Last Hill of 9 reached today on the First day of 6 Hillwalking from Llangollen to Machynlleth. It was a bit of a slog up through the Heather. I saw a rock with around 30 millipedes on it. This was the first hill that I really wanted to climb as I walked the N Berwyn way from Corwen to Llangollen. I found a track that zigzagged down to a fence and over that a large field with a track running alongside.Dazingdale04/05/2014
From Cynwyd, a round of Bryn-llus, Pen Creigiau'r Barcut, Moel Ffarna, Cerrig Coediog, Pen y Lladron, Moel yr Henfaes [Pen Bwlch Llandrillo Top], Y Drum and Moel yr Henfaes. A nice horseshoe for this area.rhalstead07/04/2014

Took lane and green road up to start of access land at Nant y Cwm, then up steeply through grass and heather (one fence to cross, but barbed wire can be avoided) to cairned summit. Returned same way. Brillant sunny weather. Lost camera where I parked. If found, there will be a reward! e-mail me at of Kernow121/10/2012
