Walk the Grwyne ridges without actually setting foot on Waun Fach! Initially, up fairly briskly onto the eastern ridge of the Grwyne Fechan and north to Pen y Gadair. Continue towards Waun Fach, but, just short of the summit, turn north east and down to the Grwyne Fawr dam. Over the dam and head north west again to the ridge where you turn southward over Pen y Manllwyn heading to Waun Fach. Just before the summit veer off right to meet the col and then a fine ridge walk back along Pen Twyn Glas.
