Monster horse shoe of 15 tops, starting at the 2-space pull in at SJ11870. Beginning anti clockwise with Garneddwen, diverting to hit Cadair Brownwen, finnishing with Godor. Approached by curious farmer as descending through his fields, as I was 30 foot off the public footpath. Friendly and pointed me to where I should of been and then authorised me to continue on course, April is a stressful time of year for our farmers so understandbale.Alfa1M28/04/2024

10:30, 4 degrees at Tan-y-pistyll (6 later), sunshine and cloud, westerlies. Much more like Snowdonia/Lake District here than over in Cwm Maen Gwynedd. Footpath, then west up the mynyddside at the gate, helped by a very faint path, then hard walking to the fence line near Talfryn. Reasonably easy along the ridge on a faint path. On to Moel yr Ewig.Wycombe Wanderer21/01/2022

S along road to high point 362m then track W to crest of ridge then along fence lines to summit of Godor & N top. Took a direct line to Moel Poethion, unpleasant, then fence lines to Moel yr Ewig. Followed fence on to summit ridge through steep band, not too bad, then to summit of Moel Sych. Descent via E ridge and over outflow of Llyn Lluncaws then direct line towards Godor N top, tough terrain. Fence lines back to road. Cloud inversion lower down but high summits still in cloud.jacobrichmond06/11/2020

4/4. Things got interesting up here. Got dark while I was on top, not a pleasant walk - boggy and a slog. Plopped down the waterfall side looking for paths in the dark.thank for for head torch. Treated myself to a moment alone by the waterfall. To celebrate end of challenging nuttal walk.tumpawumpa11/11/2017

Free car park near waterfall. Climbed straight up along fence line but I think going further and cutting back is a better bet.clivevilla18/07/2016

Solo. Snow covered. Went for this as it was such a glorious day while getting Nuttals. The hard work as a there and back made it worthwhile. Snow crust constantly breaking while crossing the heather.Aimless Rambler20/01/2016

With Cabe.simon and co31/08/2014
from Moel Y Ewig, following fence past main top of Godor. what to say about this top...?? the views to the main ridge are pretty special. followed fence down to tan y pistyll. very steep. summit is a grassy clump about 10ft from gate. no cairn... not much of a path either. boggy in places.stig_nest04/08/2014
A big day for me today. My last 10 Nuttalls (excl. Pillar Rock). Walked with Chris. Parking for 3 cars by the river off the road down from the phone box. Nuttall route plus detour to Moel Poethion. Should have known better than to hope for sunshine on this special day. At least the tops were clear and the showers intermittent. Excellent walk and not demanding.ijpowell01/08/2014
My last hill of the day on a long walk from Llandrillo to Llangynog via the Berwyn ridge, North to south, also exploring waterfalls en-route. After this little bump next to the fence i went down steeply to explore some of the waterfalls before following the track to Pistyll Rhaedr.Dazingdale05/05/2014

Climbed as part of a horseshoe of 13 centred on Cadair Berwyn from the head of the valley. A lot of the route will retain water in wetter periods.JohnStoneham13/05/2011
