With Rufus from Llyn Dubach, summits of Moel Gamallt, Moel Wnog and both tops of Craig y Garreg Lwyd. Took quarry track between Carreg y Foel Gron and Y Garnedd, made a beeline straight to Moel Gamallt. Walked N to pick up faint track along wall W to a good track heading S to near the summit of Moel Wnog. Vehicle track and quarry incline to Craig y Garred Lwyd and a simple walk back towards Carreg y Foel Gron.jacobrichmond26/03/2020

Carreg y Foel Gron, Y Garnedd, Y Gamallt, Y Garnedd N Top, Moel Wnog, Craig y Garreg Lwyd and Craig y Garreg Lwyd W Top. Some paths but mostly pathless but not too bad underfoot. 8 miles, 3h 30.clivevilla01/05/2017
Parked in the viewpoint car park off B4391 and headed off cross-country against the grain of the land via Bryn-glas, fording a stream and tackling a barbed wire fence. Then worked round the cwm to climb to the summit from the south-east, with one more fence to tackle to reach it. Walk continued over the next Pedwar. Solo, on a brilliant warm sunny day.Man of Kernow101/11/2015
