In between Brynrefail and Deiniolen there is a very pretty area of rough ground with lots of trees, bracken, brambles criss-crossed by a few vague footpaths. In this area there are a few hidden boulders. Last night I headed up to try and seek them out.
I've added the boulders we visited to UKC:
Basking in glorious evening light at gone 7pm we repeated Willow 6B+ and Mat's Arete 6B on Mat's arête boulder.

I managed an on-sight (probably FA) of schoolboy traverse which we reckoned is about 7a+ with an awkward finish, and pretty good.
