A four-topper from the CP next to Darowen church. First the ROW and field climb to Fron Goch. Down To Nantygaseg Farm and the road below, turned left and then picked up a zig-zag path through the bracken from opposite Cegir to the Glyndwr's Way just SW of Cern Goch. Quick detour to the summit and along ridge fence track E to pick up GW again. ROWs back to Darowen then continued to Ffridd Pen-y-Graig and over sheep fields and fences to Bryn-Einon. Track and minor road return.summitter29/08/2023

Extension of Abercegir- Cefn Coch- Darowen- Fron Goch- Nantygaseg- Abercegir day walk, to bag Ffridd Pen-y-Graig, with Pete. We used marktrengoveís route- key is to keep to the ROW a bit further than one might expect, to SH 8423 0222 where gate gives barbed wire-free access. Returned to Darowen same way. Good parking space at Darowen, though itís main purpose must be for church services.pwheeler17/09/2018
