Part of a circular from Llandrillo taking in the previously bagged Cadair Bronwengreboicus02/06/2024
20 miles 3619ft walk, start at Cynwyd lay-by to Bryn-Llus, Pen Creigiau'r Barcut, Moel Fferna, Cerrig Coediog, Cefn Perfedd, Pen Bwlch LLandrillo, Cadair Bronwen and Y-Drum down and along forest track back to lay-by.stephenbuda04/05/2024
2nd ascent, 10 years after my 1st and 4th top of 12 on a 28km circular from Llanarmon D.C, continuing after Pen-yr-eryr heading West on increasingly difficult ground. Finally reached fenceline and followed it up to the fence post at the summit, crossing over to the concessionary path. I was pretty tired at this point and I needed to reast but it was fairly cold so i continued North heading to Cadair Bronwen...Dazingdale09/03/2024

Llandrillo circular route to memorial, cadair bronwen, cadair berwyn and back. Very boggy and frozen - good way to lose a boot and get frostbite!Iam_JoshEdwards16/01/2021

10 hill circuit based around Cadiar Bronwen. Start and finish on a forestry track not far from Cynwyd. Fantastic, sunny Saturday with hardly anyone on the hills.BobHancock22/04/2017
Solo walk during a weekend trip to Llangollen for a friend's Birthday. Tyn-y-ffridd - Godor - along Nuttalls to Cadair Berwyn - north as far as Moel yr Henfaes - back to Cadair Bronwen - over Tomle ridge - back to Tyn-y-ffridd. Amazing weather with a cloud inversion.AGWilliamson17/12/2016

Ty'n-y-parc to Bwlch Llandrillo pass to Pen Bwlch Llandrillo to Cadair Bronwen. Return to Ty'n-y-parc to complete circuit. Walked solo, time 5 hours. Sunny weather, but hazy. Saw no-one all day except motor-cross riders on Bwlch Llandrillo, despite being a Sunday. Beautiful easy walk in some really wild country. Hard going along the watershed path with bogs, heather (in places) and slushy melting snow obliterating the path. Great day though!jamessteel10013/03/2016
Bagged after Cadair Berwyn and when the fog had cleared.Neil Haslewood01/10/2015
Parked at 081404 and after the Sim of Pen y Lladron headed to this xN which I missed on the original round of Cadair Bronwen and Berwyn. Solo.bolton19/09/2015

My first hill of the day on a North to South traverse of the Berwyn ridge from Llandrillo to Llangynog using the track out of Llandrillo and turning South at the memorial stone on the concessionary path. It is worthwhile straying from the path as there are great views on the Eastern side as the ground steepens considerably. The wind was getting quite strong on this exposed section of the route. The views looking back or North in my case are very pleasing.Dazingdale05/05/2014
Part of Cadair Berwyn horseshoe roughly following the Nuttalls route with a few additions.rhalstead08/04/2014

With Minnie from Llandrillo up the easy track to the col then onto Moel yr Henfaes then to Cadair Bronwen a good freeze made the going less boggy, a little snow on top, the 3000footers look to have a good covering, sunny & cold. Back to Llandrillo on track across Moel Pearce.apricorum29/11/2012
