From the arch. On permissive path. At 2nd gate, Via bwf to top in felled section.Moorponder18/07/2019
Parked at the Arch and climbed up to Pen Bwlch yr Oerfa and then across to Lan Lwyd. I went on a track through the felled forest which was not great. It would probably have been better to skirt the felled forest.clivevilla03/04/2019
