Last of a mountain loop from Cray, Nedd, Gyhirych, Cefn Cul . Fairly nondescript summit plateau with 2 high points. Then down to Swansea valley for bus.richardrosser26/02/2019
Small parking area on W. side of road at SN85564 22345 - W. along track for about 50yd to start of ATV track - Up ATV track which eventually disappears, but nevertheless a straightforward ascent over decent terrain to the unmarked summit; the cairned top 100m to the NW, which at first sight appears higher, is 7cm lower.

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
