From parking at Llyn Eigiau Reservoir. Visited on the return from Clogwyn Llech Lefn.PGCE26/01/2024
With Rufus from Llyn Eigiau. Track to dam then L past Hafod y Rhiw. Marked path (faint sheep track) directly uphill from the house then a direct line through deep heather along the crest of the spur to the summit. On descent I found a better route following sheep tracks just to the R of the spur looking down which takes you to the path leading back to the house. A nice vantage point peering towards Craig yr Ysfa.jacobrichmond12/09/2023
