1) Cribarth (428m summit) and trigpoint located away from summit. 2) Twynwalter (502m summit). 3) Carreg Goch (558m summit). 4) Disgwylfa (543m summit). 5) Pen Bwlch y Ddeuwynt (473m summit) and nearby trigpoint 6) Tyle Garw (467m summit). After days of heavy rain some very boggy valleys between summit, a long walk just as hard as tackling higher peaks! /D A simple enough climb from Twynwalter. A scenic summit, although apps and OS map may be wrong on actual summit, I visited two places to be sure.meltdiceburg27/10/2023

From Glyntawe. Originally tried to go up the slightly shorter path to the NE of the river but it was in spate and I had to descend and go up the other side (through the caravan parl with emus!). I met a guy on the way down who was going up to see the Welligton bomber crash site. I hadn't spotted it but it looks interesting on google.clivevilla29/12/2015
