Parked at 84956 31471 by what looks like a chapel, up the road, left at the fork, over Moel Hafod yr Wyn, up to Ffridd Trawsgoed, on to Foel Both then round the forest edge and across to Moel Ymenwyn. Tough going for much of the time. 7.24 miles 3 hours 28 minutes.clivevilla17/04/2019
Moel Llyfnant, Foel Ystrodur Fawr, Foel Boeth, Moel Ymenyn, Arenig Fawr South Ridge Top, Carreg y Diocyn,Arenig Fawr South Top, Arenig Fawr and Moel Llechwedd. Another glorious dayAlunrees3303/07/2018
Parked Dolhendre near phone box,up lane and track via Trawscoed then up to burnt area as SS to Foel Boeth.dgresty26/04/2017
Parked on hardstanding by side of minor road to SW at 822328 (Space for 1-2 cars) Path up W. side of Erwent gorge & then tussocky crossing to bridleway E. along bridleway before making way up to edge of forest at 834337 where there is a strip of widely spaced dead trees A short climb up between dead trees to summit cairn.

From chapel on minor road up past Trawscoed then to Foel Boeth using burnt area. Came down under green stuff quite easily to south. Then horrid crossing to Moel Ymenyn through heather. Returned via Cwm Tylo but bridle way is very very wet back to upward route.SS10/09/2016
Continuation of walk from Moel Ymenyn. Descended south-west through thick heather, over stream, then tough heather-bashing up to the north edge of the forest. Followed the edge of the forest west to its highest point at SH 83480 33934. Then took firebreak south to a minor top. From there it was a forest thrash for 100m SSW to the summit. Not a route I'd recommend! To descend, followed firebreak steeply south to forest edge, then long haul along the southern flank of Arennig Fawr's south ridge to rejoin outward route north of Foel Ystrodur Fawr. A tough hill in remote country. Solo.marktrengove13/03/2016
Very rough walking , make sure you take your poles. You have to walk in from the south as I could not find any other way in. Was glad to get back to the car after this one.DARRENG07/08/2015
From 3393. Hard work. Heather and no paths. There has been a fire which makes entry at 83451 33677 good. From summit it seems best to retrace your steps unless you have full body armour.destaylor01/08/2013
Climbed after Moel Ymenyn. Short thrash through forest from top of ride 70m to east.chriswatson14/03/2013
This top is still tricky to get to. Much of the forest on the northern side has been cleared and there is a break which allows access to the top but be aware that it's rough walking.Ianto&Sue02/09/2010
