From Authfan (Holiday cottage) at Tan-y-Gader - Gilfachwydd - Llyn Gwernon - Gellilwyd Fawr - Craig-Castell Summit - Hafod dywgll - Afon Gwynant (upstream) to Tynyceunant - Lane then track to Cefn yr Owen Isaf - lane then track to Tyn llidiart - Pared-y-Cefn hir - Llynnou Cregennen -Ffordd Ddu back to Cottage.briandavies24/09/2018
From Cregennan lakes car park, clear path to the summit. Like most, we enjoyed this hill immensely. We continued the traverse, always entertaining, along a thin trod after the HP, to Ty'n llidiart. We'd have crossed over to Bryn Brith but couldn't spot a feasible route without considerable descent. One could return from Ty'n llidiart to the the car park easily- I'd recommend this if you only want to go on this hill, but we continued a lovely walk via Kings YH to Craig y Castell (Ma:qv) and back via the N shore of Llyn Gwernan. With Pete.pwheeler10/09/2018
Pared y Cefn Hir and Bryn Brith from the obvious car park for the lake. It was misty and became rainy so I did not know what I was taking on. I still do not really but both were steep and involved hands - at least they did the way I went but I could not really see to choose a route.clivevilla18/08/2018

A beautiful 'Matterhorn shape' and lake. Ran uphill (KIMM training) working hard, nice circuit along ridge linking Pared y Cefn (unaware of its future bagging status at time) and onto the then sub-Marilyn of Bryn Birth. Back to car park below cliffs.Chris Pearson25/09/1999
