Very boggy from the road by the track and recommend coming at it from near the county boundary further up the road. Keep to the rocks as far as possible and you will come to the ruined dam (not bridge).simon and co27/06/2014
Approaching from the nearest point on the road you are drawn to what appears to be an old stone bridge that has seen better days. Using this avoids the damp ground.JohnStoneham06/05/2013
Start ~ 757413. Direct to Cerrig y Leirch, then on to Carned Iago. return through forest.steve hudson03/06/2009
After early afternoon finish to pre-exp w/e (run by John & Bonny). 500m tops in warm sunshine -walking as wobbly with after- effects of a virus picked up in Ecuador. Had a bit ofa scramble / traverse on the little craggy wall near summit. A lovely quiet spot. Took in this summit and spot height top half km away and bumps inbetween.Chris Pearson31/08/2003
