Parked up at the Moel Arthur car park having previously found no spaces at the Gates area. Had to wait 5 mins for a car to depart and then another car departed and I had plenty of space. I climbed up steep slope SE not realising the constructed footpath was on the Western side of the fence and I climbed up the Eastern side however it was actually easier to go over fence with wooden slats to reach summit from this side. Summit is a subtle gently domed rise with another slightly lower rise to the North. There appears to be a standing stone and stone circle that lie just below to the East but these are not marked on the map. I headed North and descended steeply to track continuing to Moel Plas-yw.Dazingdale28/01/2024

Parked at Bwlch Penbarra car park (only £1.50 for the whole day). Firstly popped to the top of Foel Fenlli, before returning to the car to collect my rucksack for the longer journey north over Moel Famau, Moel Dywyll, Moel Llys-y-coed, then a big descent and ascent to Moel Arthur, and Moel Plas-yw. As no car to collect me, I had to walk south back along the ridge to Bwlch Panbarra. Mainly on Offa's Dyke trail with many people in glorious sunshine and a refreshing breeze. 21km with 1040m ascent in 6 hours.silveracorn_alan07/08/2022
