From coastal path, trod up from SH 39839 94760carole engel03/12/2017
Lovely circular route, from Llanbadrig churchJamesD197223/06/2017
From 387 944 where there's passing for two cars just west of footpath north past the big white house, to the bay with interesting ruin before taking coastal path west then back tracking east to the Middle summit. Now a beautiful sunny afternoon, fluffy cumulus and turquoise sea on to this highest of the three Craig Wen 91.3m with trig pillar S7297vegibagger13/06/2017

A detour from the coastal pathbardolph28/05/2017
From Dinas Gynfor on very windy family walk. Only Xan and I visited the actual summit.Herbert Anchovy13/02/2017
Parked to the SSE then footpath initially until a narrow path was found through the prickly gorse and heather to bag trig then Tump summit.Dugswell225/01/2017
Third of 3 tumps - lovely walk.jimbloomer09/01/2017
Bit of a tricky one to find but spied the trig point after a little searching. Archie had a sleep in the carrier for the first time. Lovely sunny winter day.W111KYB28/11/2016
TRig just off coastal path and set amongst attractive ( but prickly) purple heather and yellow gorse. Hard to tell which is the high point of this and several rocky outcrops but we bow to the Trimble.Denise 07/08/2016
Plenty of lumps to choose from amongst the heather and gorse of the summit ridge. I thought the most western outcrop myself but it's not a popular choice for the summit.RichardM07/08/2016
Third of 3 tumps on this fine section of coastal headland from Ty'n-llan. Number of large rocks protruding the surface, an obvious contender for HP is the largest rock, but believe a smaller one is the best bet. Trig pillar approx 80m ESE.jonglew15/09/2015
Parked car in small grassy lay-by on minor lane south of the coastal hills at SH 38877 94474 - room for one car. Main car park south-west of Llanbadrig was closed for refurbishment. Took lane east to bend, then grassy track north to west side of Porth Wen. Then followed coastal path a short way before diverting to climb up through little crags and low gorse to trig point. Then visited central top and western top too. Walk continued to Dinas Gynfor. Solo Nordic walk in fine sunny weather.marktrengove13/06/2015

Large car park Cemaes Bay at SH 37489 93760. Climbed Dynas Gynfor and Craig Wen on fabulous 6.5 mile circular coastal walk. Retuned to car park walking west on very quiet minor road. Cut a large loop of road out via a public footpath to Llanbadrig.David Gradwell11/07/2010
