Climbed from the Cwm Berwyn footpath (to the north east). Stunning views and a marvellous summit even though it has neither the trig point or the highest point, this feels like the summit of the Radnorshire Carneddau.Rob Rees04/12/2019
Parked at SO 08142 53964 on the bend on the verge on the minor road. Did a circuit of Carneddau SE Top, Carneddau S Top, Carneddau SW Top and Caer Fawr. About 1 hour 45 mins. All fairly straightforward with no difficulties.clivevilla05/03/2019
from SE top, easy walk along tracks worn by scramble bikes.DanMaisieBex17/02/2019
