Parked at SN 85564 22345 then headed straight up Moel Feity. Back down, over the road and fence then up to Cefn Cul. Easy going, some slightly boggy ground but plenty of sheep tracks to follow.Neolith20/07/2017
From minor road to SE. Easy going. Visited all possible tops. The highest one didn't have a pile of rubble (long may it remain so) unlike the one to its NW.Alan Moore17/06/2017
From road to E. Flat grassy top. Had a walk over to the other 590m contours, nothing much in it really.jonglew21/03/2017
