Parked at the Glaslyn access gate then along track to Bugeilyn. Continued along track across Tarren Bwlch-gwyn to Clipyn Du. By far the easiest part of the walk as it was then wet and rough terrain to capture the four tops of Carn Hyddgen, Foel Uchaf, Foel Isaf and Llechwedd Crin. Sloshed up Banc Bugeilyn for good measure before retreating to the van for succour, tea and biccies.summitter30/08/2023
5/11 I roughly followed GB's route from the cattle grid at 837952 bagging 7 Deweys and small detours to get 4 nearby minor peaks. Visited Clipyn Du, Mawnog, Carn Hyddgen, Foel Uchaf, Foel Isaf, Llechwedd Crin, Banc Bugeilyn, Esgair Greolen, Bryn yr Wyn, Foel Fadian, and finishing with Bryn y Fedwen. Some tough pathless sections, but also some quick bits with cart and quad bike tracks. Splendid views! A total distance of 27.5km with 980m ascent in 8.5 hours.silveracorn_alan09/04/2022
After Llechwedd Crin, stiff going at first from Crin, the distance between them seemingly further than the 700m shown on the map. Weather was getting poorer with rain approaching from the SW, so we aborted our plans to head to the source of the river Severn & took the track all the way back to the car. We got soaked. Our 100th new hill of 2021.DanMaisieBex22/12/2021
