Third of seven Dewey's on a walk of around 20 miles from the memorial west of Drosgol taking seven and a half hours. Route first took in Drosgol and Banc Llechwedd mawr then after this top went onto Foel Fras, Pen y Darren, Pen Creigiau'r Llan and Banc yr Wyn.WAYNE ROWLETT26/05/2018

Nice walk round from the forest south to Drosgol via an almost impassible ROW which is an old leat. Then up the slope on better ground. Dropped down to the ruin of Drosgol Farm, then over the bridge and up Banc Llechwedd Fawr, then north past Hyddgen, Bryn Moel, Foel Graffiau and Foel Fras before dropping down onto a heavily eroded bridleway back to the car.Neolith11/05/2017
Parking to west at SN 72323 90960. Track (drivable for a lot of the way) to bridge over the Afon Llechwedd-mawr then grass to the top. Alan Moore08/04/2017
Parked in passing place/layby near to where Glyndwr's Way leaves the no through road at 775960. Round of Pen y Darren, Creigiau Bwlch Hyddgen, Foel Fras, Foel Uchaf, Foel Grafiau, FG W.Top, Bryn Moel and Mynydd Bychan.clivevilla24/03/2017
Parked at old mines then off in a counter clockwise loop through Ban yr Wyn (out and back), Foel Grafiau, Foel Fras, Moel Hyddgen, Pen Creigiau'r Llan, Banc Bwlchygarreg, West Top (Or East Top of next), Moel y Llyn then returned past old level after missing higher row. Note new footbridge just north of ford before Lluest-y-rhos (noticed after fording it). Open ground to south of Pen Creigiau'r Llan (shown as forest) but need to negotiate barbed wire. Overcast all day.SS17/05/2015
A little more shape than Foel Fras next door.arranc05/08/2014
Continuation of walk from Foel Fras. Followed track south to bwlch, then west over fence (not barbed) to summit. Best hill of the three 529m ones for shapeliness and views. Descended west to 493m top, then descended down to Llyn Penrhaeadr. Then narrow cliff path besides falls and down into fine remote cwm. Then north by boggy RoW back to Cwmyrhaiadr.Man of Kernow118/05/2014
