Halfway point before turning back to the car and retracing my steps over the previous peaks. Steep climb up this mountain, huge cairn at summit made of slate and quartz. Superb views on the day. Path to summit has planking across the boggy land that was very helpful but some more is needed in places.giant_hiker03/08/2019

Ty'n-y-parc to Bwlch Llandrillo pass to Pen Bwlch Llandrillo to Cadair Bronwen. Return to Ty'n-y-parc to complete circuit. Walked solo, time 5 hours. Sunny weather, but hazy. Saw no-one all day except motor-cross riders on Bwlch Llandrillo, despite being a Sunday. Beautiful easy walk in some really wild country. Hard going along the watershed path with bogs, heather (in places) and slushy melting snow obliterating the path. Great day though!jamessteel10013/03/2016

2nd Summit of the day on a long walk from Llandrillo to Llangynog. Obvious Cairn that looks partially collapsed. I didnt stay long as the wind was quite ferocious here. I could see the North side of Cadair Bronwen for quite a while walking on the track from Llandrillo to the memorial stone. I passed One walker on the way up from Cadair Bronwen Ne top and that was it all day (apart from Pistyll Rhaedr waterfall)Dazingdale05/05/2014
