    Mark Davidson walked up Waun Rydd on July 10th, 2009 [with] Alone [weather] Quite nice

    Christina Lander climbed Waun Rydd on April 15th, 2014 [from/via/route] Talybont upper car park - Craig y Fan Ddu - Bomber crash site - Waun Rydd - Talybont Reservoir (east side) - back to car park [with] Dick & Suzanne [weather] Warm & sunny - A very long, tiring day

    Robert Taylor-Marriott bagged Waun Rydd on December 5th, 2012 [from/via/route] Route 46: Track Bwlch y Ddwyallt, Waun Rydd & Allt Lwyd (BWA) [with] Vince Wetton and Robert Taylor-Marriott [weather] Sunny, cold and snow.

    Tim Buckley hiked Waun Rydd on November 17th, 2013 [from/via/route] From car park on the road from the Talybont Res. via Craig y Fan Ddu, Craig Fan-las turn right at the junction of paths and across the peat bogs! [with] Lynne [weather] Horrible, dense hill fog, visibility 100ft, 5 degrees, 20mph winds and severe wind chill at Craig fan-las. It was drizzling too!! - You know when you're an obsessed peak bagger when you come out in these conditions to knock off a hill. Met two separate groups of three walkers who where intent on the world war two crash site. One group finding it difficult to navigate in the fog - their plan was to descend over Cwar y Gigfran (brave).

    Vince Wetton summited Waun Rydd on December 5th, 2012 [from/via/route] Allt Lwyd and Bwich y Ddwyallt [with] RTM [weather] Bright and Sunny, Bitter Cold
