From Bwlch Cerrig Duon. Mixture of faint paths and pathless moorland grass to Moel Feity and same kind of terraine to Cefn Cul.ijpowell30/08/2019
From the standing stone car park.Chris Peart01/08/2019
From Tafarn-y-Garreg, Glyntawe. Took the mountain road up to a cattle grid at SN 85074 19226, to avoid the trees. There a gap in the barbed wire fence gave access to the open hill, with a rising traverse to the summit. Onwards to Moel Feity. Solo.Man of Kernow107/07/2019

From road col, across rough but tolerable terrain with occasional trods. Both tops visited. Pleasantly warmColin Crawford30/03/2019
Hottest February day ever recorded in UK, stunning weather, straight up from Brecon road, very dry ground, short grass, easy walking, two high points on summit plateau then onward to Moel Feityrichardrosser26/02/2019
Small parking area on W. side of road at SN85564 22345 - Up road for about 130yd & then over padlocked gate - A fairly straightforward ascent; some tussocky bits, but also some decent ATV tracks & trods. Crossed fence by tall fence post at 8594 2158 where barbed wire has been cut. (S)gerrybowes21/02/2018

Parked at SN 85564 22345 then headed straight up Moel Feity. Back down, over the road and fence then up to Cefn Cul. Easy going, some slightly boggy ground but plenty of sheep tracks to follow.Neolith20/07/2017
Took an unpleasant way, keeping to access-land, through a wood and then steep ground to get to the SSW ridge. This ridge is very nice. Possibly far better to have got on to it at Dderi Farm, if the farmer doesn't mind. Then it was NNW to the yellow road at the pass.Alan Moore17/06/2017
From road to W. Walked over to 562m spot height at SN 86184 20643, which OS obviously believe to be the HP; couldn't say whether or not it is really, but the GR given here has a cairn so much more satisfying.jonglew21/03/2017

Walked on a round of Yr Allt, Moel Feity and Cefn Cul. Parked in the layby at SN 87739 20244. Walked NE on A4067 to pick up tram way at SN 88088 20587. Followed tramway to where it crosses Nant Gihirych and then walked E keeping forest on right. Came out on track above forest at SN 90190 20842 and then to top of Yr Allt. Walked back to track and left it where it does a S bend and crossed moorland to SN 89247 81854. Followed track down to A4067. Crossed to Cray reservoir and followed track to Blaencrai. Used field path to Cwm Padest then road to Cwnnenynydd. Turned L and followed track up to sheep pens and crossed moor to road. Out and back to Moel Feity. Then across moor and up to top of Cefn Cul. Followed track and eventually walls down to SN 87116 19657. Followed old railway bed NE back to layby. Route follows a mixture of sheep trods, tracks, some vague, and moorland walking. Good views of Fan Gyhirych, Fan Hir and Fan Byrcheiniog. Quite a few barbed wire fences to negotiate.MikeM25/07/2015
2/6 terrain not as easy as Moel Feity but still not so difficult wonderful views,Fergalh19/07/2015
Parked at layby by stile but had to go 100m uphill to cross bog. Going tussocky to start but got better on way to Cefn Cul. Returned to col over better ground then easily up Moel Feity on shorter grass. Returned same way and down road to car.SS18/03/2015

A pleasant mountain with great views of Fan Gyhirich, Fan Brycheniog and also further across to Pen y Fan/Cribyn. I was surprised nobody had previously logged it. Less than an hour round trip from the rmain road.clivevilla05/02/2010
