Parked with permission of farmer at Cwmchwefru. Up steep footpath and along bwf. Then south to top. With Iain Brown.Campbell Singer19/06/2023
Outcrop in sheep pasture . Abney agrees higher than trig. Absolutely gorgeous sunny day- spring has come!Denise 20/03/2022
From Allt y Clych via the trig on Craig Chwefru, an undulating sheep grazed grassy plateau with fine views. Rock outcrop high point.RichardM20/03/2022
From the trig on Craig Chwefri, this hill looked distinctly lower! Nevertheless walked over the rocky western top and the two grassy official tops. A pleasant descent back down to Cwm Hirnant.Rob Rees30/10/2021
From minor lane to SE, used path to col east of Craig Chwefri. Visited trig point and two western tops of Llethr Melyn. Steep hillside views above Cwm Chwefru, some rocky outcrops, very pleasant. Dull, dry.Hillad15/08/2020
Parked at 97134 57022 in what looks like a disused quarry, briefly up the road then up a track to the high ground then veered off on sheep paths. About three miles round trip.clivevilla04/09/2019

From minor road to SE. Very steep ascent, Craig Chwefru trig pillar first. There are 3 distinct tops here: GR on HB gives the centre one as the summit, but more rocky top to W gave me a higher elevation, and it's a much more satisfying HP.jonglew13/10/2015
