|Parking at Castell y Bere car park, Foel Cae'rberllan first then here on near enough direct route. Spotted the obvious track when coming down from Foel Cae - NW side of the gulley Nant-yr-Eira.||jonglew||05/10/2018|
|From LyP chapel via Nant y Eira ruin. Picked up the zigzag track which made life easy. Beyond the marked end there is quadbike tracks to the marked wall.. from there onwards it gets bloody miserable. Rough long grass, holes etc. Its a swine.
I'd also strongly suggest not continuing to C.I. from here either. The other side of the hill is even worse.
Very decent view given C.I. was in cloud||stig_nest||26/09/2018|
|From accommodation at Maes-y-pandy Farm. Solo. Used track, which is a public right of way, from SH698086 to ascend gradually through forest. Then on grassy track for part of the way to the summit of Foel Ddu. Sole of one walking shoe broke away completely from the rest of the shoe at one point on ascent. Tied the two parts together with the shoe lace for the rest of the ascent. Returned same way and abandoned attempt on other summits.||pwbellarby||05/04/2018|

|With Mark, from Mari Jones church car park. En route to Cader. Pretty rough long grass and when, with a few fence crossings. My very first Welsh hill.||niallp||25/09/2016|

|Delightful walk up from Pont Cedris on superb green sheep zig zags and a final 3/4 mile on tussock to the surprising rocky tops.||arranc||09/04/2014|
|From Car Park opposite Mary Jones' Chapel, direct ascent of Foel Cae'rberllan, then dencended to track at col and followed landrover track onto Foel Ddu.||rhalstead||20/03/2014|
|Easy parking at bridge near Cedris Farm. Excellent path then track to just over 1km from top. Then make a beeline - no paths apart from sheep paths. Grass mainly some long but no heather. If lose track 68802 08566 could be helpful.||destaylor||06/09/2012|
|Started from rhywogof farm and followed the ridge to the summit.Awful tussocky thick ankle breaking ground all the way.Not at all enjoyable to climb but tremendous views at the top.||DARRENG||23/08/2011|
|Started from SH698086 - GPS said 860 metres to summit - a quick grab then! Not quite - tried beeline back though in hot sun - brutal and 'interesting'||Martin R||27/06/2011|
