Parked on grass verge at start of track at 657134 (Space for 2 cars) After ascent of Esgair Berfa, dropped back down to col & then made use of sheep trods which take you to within a couple of feet of the unmarked summit. Continued to Braich Ddu. (S)gerrybowes26/05/2017

From Fairbourne up by quarry and on using forest roads to Braich Ddu then following fence lines (stiles on most) over Trawsfynydd to Esgair Berfa. Back down to land rover track (and inevitable land rovers) then over Pen y Garn and back down to quarry (one awkward wall).SS25/10/2015
From 3440 on way back to car. The banana shaped footpath to NW has been very churned up by tractor type vehicles and was very wet even though general conditions were dry.destaylor30/04/2015
From Esgair Berfa. The summit could be anywhere within 25m of Anton's grid reference due to it's flatness.JohnStoneham17/06/2014
Continuation of walk from Esgair Berfa. Descended NE and north to bwlch (interesting slate boundary marker with many old graffiti on by gate), and then up to the flat boggy summit - again a hill where you take your choice which lump of tussock grass is the summit!marktrengove15/06/2014
