From Peraidd Fynydd East Top. As the forest tracks were rather circuitous and the trees seemed fairly well spaced I decided to go straight for Cripiau South Top which was a mistake. It was OK initially but there was a bit half way that was almost impossible with numerous fallen trees.clivevilla03/05/2018
Fourth of five Dewey's on a walk just over 17mile in length starting from a lay by on the A4120 near Tymawr camping first onto Pen Dihewyd, Banc Dolwen and Cefn Croes, after Cripiau S top onto Y glog. Returned to car via B4343 which is not a busy road.WAYNE ROWLETT31/03/2018

From A44 at 793830, up Wind Farm service track to Cefn Croes & Banc Dolwen. On return, parked on bend at 801826 - Over fence & then a short steep climb up grass slope to summit knoll. (PM)gerrybowes24/01/2018
Parked on the service road on the bend. Very windy, especially on top. Only 15/20 minutes with GB.bolton24/01/2018
On my way back from Pembroke. Drove on wind farm track with the result a very short easy walk. Now find a way to Bryn Du (and Llechwedd Llwyd). It looks possible a couple of ways by car. All a bit naughty thoughMikeM23/09/2017
Walked through the trees and out onto the hill from the hairpin bend in the forestry on the 500m contour. Shame a lot of junk has been dumped here. Nice summit, but horrendous weather today.Neolith15/05/2017

Continuation of walk from Pt. 510m. Followed the high ground south to the summit. Walk continued to Pt. 557m. With AW.marktrengove02/04/2017
From Cefn Croes, track to 803825, then a bit awkward getting out of forest, but then easy to a nice summitAlanD22/03/2016
From entrance to forest up track then cut up to Cripau South Top, back to tack via forest rake, then on to Cefn Croes and beyond to Pen Y Garn. Followed track round to the rake (with yellow markers) to Banc Dorwen before dropping down to the Afon Merin. Followed track up past Nantsyddion then up to top track before cutting up just beyond Pen Dihewyd (double back to it). The going from there to Y Glog was easy enough before the drop down on the right of way to Fagwr-Fawr and then up past the old mine to the car. Excellent outing.SS04/04/2015
As part of 9 Dewey round - access to the hill from Eisteddfa Gurig difficult - but no problems once on the hillwychwood29/11/2014

Started fro A44 at SN 793 830 and walked up forest track to a point on the third hairpin bend at about 500m then a short walk through the trees and onto the open hillside. Obvious top with good views of Pumlumon Fawr.Rob Pen y Garn02/11/2012
