Part of a 2-day backpacking trip from Llansilin to Llangynog via Gyrn Moelfre, Cadair Berwyn & Foel Cedig (+ incidental tops). Route and write up at: I wouldn't recommend my route to this hill. The track from the W must be by far the more sensible approach!Gayle17/07/2024

According to 3rd edition 2009 Cyrniau Nod is the Nuttall so that's where I went. Foel Cedig would have been more straightforward!KatyT12/05/2023
Cycle from Llanfyllin via Rhialgwym. Lovely spring day. Left bike on road!davechaffey12/05/2023

A revisit after bagging Cyrniau Nod in 2006 and the change in 2015. Drove up the col at SH946273 and took the bike up the track that winds its way around to the top. Undulating but pleasant with great views to Aran Fawddwy and Arenig Fawr. Walked up the last climb and to top for 40min total to summit. Cycled/pushed back in 30 mins. Plains Rally was taking place below in the forestry - didn't like the sound of the ambulance sirens on my return though or the air ambulance flying over as I got back to the car!robphys21/05/2022
As others from the west. Easy parking at the start of the track. Last 90 metres a bit of heather.destaylor22/04/2022

Did the Nuttall's route in 2018 and a couple of weeks later Foel Cedig replaced Cyrniau Nod and a Bridge summit was added! Went to Cefn Gwyntog Far North Top first as couldn't be sure whether I passed over it the previous year. Then onto Foel Cedig which was in cloud by the time i got there. 6.7 miles in an hour and 43.Herbert Anchovy28/07/2019

From the top of the pass using the track. After declining MP's kindly invitation to join him for the resurvey (other plans and an assumption that things wouldn't change!) it was about time I repaired my Berwyn records.summitsup09/06/2019
Taking advantage of being in the area for the Bala Lake swim in the morning. Parked at top of the pass after lunch and followed the forest track to within a couple of hundred metres of the new summit. An easy walk with great views. Berwyns completed once again!ruthatlast01/06/2019
