On Rhydyronen -Corlan Fraith- Bryn Dinas- Tarren Cwm-ffernol -Pen Trum-gwr- Brynglas Sta. walk. The path to the NNE was very steep and the stream difficult to cross there so we went up the other side of the side valley up a more easy-angled curving ridge. This led to a 5 min bog crossing but we still thought it was a better route. The ROW doesn't have a path but it does have a gate at SH 6289 0064. From here, Pete and I comfortably reached the summit via SH 6316 0015 without crossing any barbed wire. Good cairn and summit ridge.pwheeler13/09/2018
Parked in layby (or long passing place - still left room for passing) at 992649 and went up the track opposite past Dysyrnant where there were three noisy sheepdogs. Climbed Bryn Dinas then over to two Deweys (Tarren Cwm-ffernol and Pen Trum-gwr) before retracing my steps and going across to Corlan Fraith and descending the same track. Great January sunny day - about 4 hours.clivevilla26/01/2018

From Erwtaethlon on a footpath well to the east of my planned route, by silage bales, through sheep by long fields to cross a wire fence, down over rough stuff via a gate onto the bridal path that I wanted to be on from the beginning. Up on path and bee line over rough tussock to skyline, turned left by wire fence, over another fence and uphill to the very large cairn.14.00. OS platform bolt under the cairn.arranc12/09/2010
