Dale Tyler walked up on August 30th, 2017 [from/via/route] 5th peak on the Waun Fach horseshoe from Cwmdu to Crickhowell [weather] Mostly glorious, two short sharp showers at the beginning of the walk-enough convince me to reproof my jacket! - 19 mile walk followed by a well deserved pint and meal in Crickhowell. Sticky toffee pudding, mmmmm!
Robert Shaw climbed on May 13th, 2017 [from/via/route] From Llanthony whilst doing the Black Mountain Challenge. [with] Alcester Gents Sports Club [weather] Wet and misty
Glenn Radford bagged on October 29th, 2015 [from/via/route] walk po105 [with] William [weather] Mist Cloud low AM Clear windy PM

Robert Taylor-marriott summited on April 11th, 2015 [from/via/route] Rhiw Trumau [with] Vince Wetton Wife, Sammy and the two Son's [weather] Sunny - Placed flowers for Vince Wetton's place ware he passed away in 17th October, 2014. All last Welsh Mountains will be completed for him.
Christina Lander conquered on March 10th, 2015 [from/via/route] Pen Carrig-calch - Pen Allt-mawr - Pen Twyn Glas - Mynydd Llysiau - Pen Trumau - Waun Fach - Pen y Gadair Fawr - Pen Twyn Mawr [with] Dick [weather] Beautiful day, warm & sunny
Tim Buckley scaled on September 28th, 2014 [from/via/route] po153 Pen Cerrig-Calch from Neuadd-Fawr, north of Llambdr. 13.5 miles oh boy at 20 degrees this was hard going [with] Solo walk, set off at 8.30am arrived here at 12.40pm [weather] As I said 20 degrees - excellant visibility - For large parts of the walk, looking ahead thought Pen y Gadiar was Waun Fach! When I realised it wasn't - it was a bonus to be further around the horse-shoe than I thought. The previous months have been very dry so not a boggy as it might have been but trail bikes have trashed the place-shame.
Wyn Griffiths walked up on March 5th, 2014 [from/via/route] From Neuadd Fawr via Pen Twyn Glas & Mynydd LLysiau [with] Me [weather] Dry. Very wet underfoot in many places - Training for Welsh 3000

David Lane bagged on August 15th, 2008 [with] Kelly
