An anticlockwise circuit of 8 Deweys from 723909, generally following GB's detailed guidance, but with deviations onto an additional 7 nearby minor peaks. Mostly easy going on grass and forest tracks in a nice remote area, but some tussocky areas. Visited summits in the following order: Banc yr Wyn, Foel Grafiau West Top, Foel Grafiau, Foel Uchaf, Foel Fras, Creigiau Bwlch Hyddgen, Pen y Darren, Pen Creigiau'r Llan North Top, Pen Creigiau'r Llan, Esgair Fraith, Banc Bwlchygarreg East Top, Banc Bwlchygarreg, Moel y llyn, Banc Bwlchygarreg West Top, and Bryn Maw (after dropping the rucksack in the car). A total distance of 24 km, with 1050m ascent, taking 8 hours.silveracorn_alan10/04/2022
