Reached whilst summiting Nuttalls Tarrenhendre and Tarren y Gesail following the nine mile Tarren hills route from Abergynolwyn also reaching Mynydd Rhyd-Galed and with a three mile extension Mynydd Braich-Goch.WAYNE ROWLETT01/03/2020
3/4 As Nuttall book. Tarrenhendre, Mynydd Rhyd-Galed, Foel y Geifr and Tarren y Gesail. Showers but a dry finish. Lovely waterfalls at start and enjoyable ridge. No time to divert to East Top on ridge as wild wind there.nickywood126/09/2019

12.5 mile circular walk from Abergynolwyn in perfect weather, walked up lane to forest, went out and back to Foel Pandy, continued following lane to end then final pull onto Tarren Y Gesail, followed path down and gained ridge at Foel y Geifr, then carried on to Mynydd Rhyd-Galed East Top and Mynydd Rhyd-Galed, then onto Tarrenhendre from summit followed poles along path back into the forest where the trees have taken over the path, followed forest lanes back to Abergynolwyn, very nice walk with views of Cadair Idris, Diffwys and even Plynlimon.DanTrig27/09/2015

Walked over here on way to Tarren Y Gesail from Mynydd Rhyd-galed. A path in the corner of the plantation takes you through the trees to the col and the long slog up to TYG.Herbert Anchovy31/10/2014

Climbed after Tarren Y Gesail by aiming towards it on a bearing. I lost my compass on the way down. Climbed over a fence and found the summit on the ridge. Descending down the edge of forestry plantation, cutting in to access one of the forestry paths. Very confusing following the fp signs as there were so many trees that were blocking the path. In the end I had to backtrack as I was walking South west instead of the correct track towards Machynlleth. Corrected and eventually arrived late in Machynlleth, having finished a whole week of Walking in Wales, starting in Llangollen, over the Berwyns to Llandrillo, over the Berwyns to llangynog, the berwyns to Llanuwchllyn, the Arans to Dolgellau, Cader Idris to Minffordd hotel and the Final route from there to Machynlleth.Dazingdale09/05/2014
