1) Cribarth (428m summit) and trigpoint located away from summit. 2) Twynwalter (502m summit). 3) Carreg Goch (558m summit). 4) Disgwylfa (543m summit). 5) Pen Bwlch y Ddeuwynt (473m summit) and nearby trigpoint 6) Tyle Garw (467m summit). After days of heavy rain some very boggy valleys between summit, a long walk just as hard as tackling higher peaks! /D A slog over from Carreg Goch, a ridge in the way, had to wade Afon Giedd in spate as didn't have time to go around (avoided it lower down later as it was underground). Very very boggy, especially Gwys Fawr but couldn't be avoided. I was determined to fit in the summit / trigpoint and it is a lovely remote place when I got here.meltdiceburg27/10/2023

Botched together a route from the end of the lane at 78471 12956 - ask permission to park - going first to Pen Bwlch y Ddeuwynt, then across to Tyle Garw, continuing across to Carn Fadog before heading back cross country and wading across the river which I had managed to jump across upstream on the way out. The trig near Pen Bwlch y Ddeuwynt is supposedly the most remote one in Wales.clivevilla22/03/2022

Parked opposite derelict pub at SN 84880 17162. Crossed Afon Tawe by bridge and then took Brecon Beacons Way up the south ridge of Fan Hir, diverting west by sheeptracks to the waterfall at the head of Cwm Haffes. Skirting the marsh beyond, picked up bridleway over the Afon Giedd, then south by sheeptracks from Banwen Gwyn, down over the Gwys Fawr and up to north top. South top west of trig point seemed higher. Walk continued to Tyle Garw. With MP on a hot sunny day with stiff SW wind.Man of Kernow110/07/2014
