From road to W. Walked over to 562m spot height at SN 86184 20643, which OS obviously believe to be the HP; couldn't say whether or not it is really, but the GR given here has a cairn so much more satisfying.jonglew21/03/2017

Walked on a round of Yr Allt, Moel Feity and Cefn Cul. Parked in the layby at SN 87739 20244. Walked NE on A4067 to pick up tram way at SN 88088 20587. Followed tramway to where it crosses Nant Gihirych and then walked E keeping forest on right. Came out on track above forest at SN 90190 20842 and then to top of Yr Allt. Walked back to track and left it where it does a S bend and crossed moorland to SN 89247 81854. Followed track down to A4067. Crossed to Cray reservoir and followed track to Blaencrai. Used field path to Cwm Padest then road to Cwnnenynydd. Turned L and followed track up to sheep pens and crossed moor to road. Out and back to Moel Feity. Then across moor and up to top of Cefn Cul. Followed track and eventually walls down to SN 87116 19657. Followed old railway bed NE back to layby. Route follows a mixture of sheep trods, tracks, some vague, and moorland walking. Good views of Fan Gyhirych, Fan Hir and Fan Byrcheiniog. Quite a few barbed wire fences to negotiate.MikeM25/07/2015
2/6 terrain not as easy as Moel Feity but still not so difficult wonderful views,Fergalh19/07/2015
Parked at layby by stile but had to go 100m uphill to cross bog. Going tussocky to start but got better on way to Cefn Cul. Returned to col over better ground then easily up Moel Feity on shorter grass. Returned same way and down road to car.SS18/03/2015

A pleasant mountain with great views of Fan Gyhirich, Fan Brycheniog and also further across to Pen y Fan/Cribyn. I was surprised nobody had previously logged it. Less than an hour round trip from the rmain road.clivevilla05/02/2010

Down to the Brecons for a few days to help supervise a Gold D of E group with Jenny L and Peter from Seaford. Time inbetween meeting the group to snatch a few hills. Also traversed hill on OMM 2013 with Darren - passing a stone's throw away from summit -but every second counted on Score to bar any summit deviations.Chris Pearson20/04/2006
