We parked at the lower car park on the road which leads from Llangadog to Brynamman. This road recently appeared on the ITV4 Bike Show as one of the best hills for cycling. Presumably for those with lungs and legs of steel.
We walked up into the quarry which is now part of an interpretative trail which explains the limestone industry. There is a link here, although the web site needs updating as the trail is now marked and in being.

We left the trail and headed for the waterfalls of the Afon Clydach which with the recent lack of rainfall was lacking in splendour. We did however see a leylandi tree which appeared out of kilter with the landscape.

The route continued to overlook the Tyle Garw and turned south to wander over the wilderness to disused quarry buildings where we had lunch.

The return journey headed over Cefn Carn Fadog, Foel Fraith and the unnamed top at the trig point at 616m before heading back down to the car.
