Was not planning to do this one, but I made a mess of my return from circuit of Esgair Ganol, Cistfaen and Cerrig Gwaun y-llan. To escape the long grass to the north I went along ATV track that took me almost to top. Back down to road trying to find tracks.PeterD19/07/2023

Parked at 85390 75811, back up the road to second finger post. There was quite a bit of snow. I went up the track and then headed straight for the top. Descended more directly.clivevilla03/04/2019
