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
After Carneddau S top, followed the fence, standing stone, a few fences.DanMaisieBex17/02/2019
Fifth and final summit. Anticlockwise walk with Iain Brown over Carneddau plateau of 5 tumpsvegibagger31/12/2018
Parked at SO05205193 (could have parked further up the track).Pleasant amble round Caer Fawr (first) then Carneddau South Top, Carneddau SW Top and finally Carneddau SE Top. Finished off with Caer Einion P15+. Delightful.summitsup29/10/2017

Approaching from the NE this was the most straightforward summit of the day - a good path that was bracken free.JohnStoneham06/09/2014
From SSW. Drove first part of access road and parked just above quarry entrance, no problems but NB quarry is live and road quite busy Sat pm. Maybe best (and easier!) to drive up steep roughish tarmac access road and park before Maengowan farm (which is organic according to a welcome sign visible on way down!)RHW26/07/2014
