Short steep climb
by Fergalh  6 Apr 2021
From Pen Y Garn head south east a sharp descent is followed by a river crossing (always fun!). Than a sharp ascent leads to the unmarked summit. This is at a rotting fence post in some reeds. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B3440/comment/22814/

The final leg of the circuit
by Fergalh  6 Apr 2021
From Esgair Berfa North East Top it is a short distance to the grassy track that leads down to the valley. This winds its way past a few farms onto a lane which leads to a crossroads head Northeast at the crossroads and finally the starting point 24 km later !
