Walk 13.4 from the Nuttalls book minus Y Gyrn since I had already done it. Started from a layby half a mile or so north of the Storey Arms on the A470 beside the Craig Cerrig Gleisiad nature reserve. Crossed the road and the fields onto the old drovers road and headed south to the Storey Arms. Then ascended Fan Fawr over frozen mud with a little snow. Crossed to the other two hills and then took the nature reserve path back to the car. Beautiful cold sunny day. Again later in the year from Blaen Llia taking in Fan Llia, Craig Cerrig Gleisiad and Fan Frynych.islamidget14/03/2013
