With JF. From the converted chapel (work is close to completion). AF and DB pottered around the lower slopes. Calm, dry, very mild, cloud base at about 280m. Clear path through the rocks and low heather all the way.Owen B28/12/2018
Final hill on walk from Nefyn via Garn Boduan. I approached along FPs from East which are not well defined in places. Best route is from Garnfadryn to SW. I followed this down and then walked to Bottwonng for bus back to Pwllheli. Super hill.trimarc208/10/2018
Lovely early evening walk up from chapel, amazing views from top, not one cloudsteve_a07/06/2018
Second hill of the day. Again in mist. Started at converted chapel in Garnfadryn. Plenty of parking.huwthomas04/04/2018
A splendid hill for my last Llyn Marilyn, with Twice Shy (Alex). From the chapel, loads of parking. The hill looks steep, heathery and scree covered, but the path is surprisingly easy and well-graded, and goes all the way up. Much loafing in the sun and admiring the views.Gill09/03/2018
Good Climb from parking at converted chapel to south.rhalstead24/12/2017
Good parking, chapel still being worked on, easy path take you all the way to the top even though it looks like it is going to be a steep walk up at times its not too bad at all. you even get a trig point as a bonus when you get there.Father Ted07/10/2017
With K from Chapel to S. Not as big as it looks. Hill fort very interesting.Ashley25/07/2017
From the converted chapel. Loads of parking. Phone box is a wol but the lane obvious enough. Lots of sopping wet bracken was my only real issue. Clear path otherwise. Looks to be a gem of a hill,certainly climbs like one. No view today though.stig_nest19/07/2017
With Trefor. From converted chapel to the south. Good path to summit. Good weather and great viewsmike.hoult05/04/2017
Up track from S, starting at chapel in Garnfadryn (plenty of parking). Fantastic views of the Lleyn Peninsula from the top. Nice hill.Cas-gwent16/03/2017

3 walks on Lleyn Peninsula with Hobbses. Parked at disused chapel to S, good path all the way. Great viewsMark Jackson19/08/2016
Used track right by the side of the chapel (Aug 2016 being converted to a home). At Resr path turns right and is cleared through gorse and bracken to the summit.G4OBK (Phil)14/08/2016
Lovely isolated little mountain with wide views of Lleyn peninsula, Anglesey, Snowdonia and as far as Ceredigion and even Ireland. Interesting ancient hill fort remains at top - reminded me of Carrock Fell in the Lakes. Did a clockwise circumnavigation of the hill from Ty-bwlcyn in northwest, before ascending from Carn Fadryn-Garn Bach saddle up the pleasant tourist path. Walked with Labrador. Rights of way to north and east of Carn Fadryn are ill-defined with lots of dog-unfriendly stiles (and one stile was dangerously in bad repair). Weather fine, dry but slightly overcast. Time 2 hrs 15 min.jamessteel10031/07/2016

Short walk with G/F up from the bus stop by the chapel in Garnfadryn itself. Wonderful hillfort, with a Bronze Age cairn among the rocky outcrops and superb views of the whole peninsula, a bit hazy towards Yr Wyddfa though on our visit. After this we visited the excellent chambered tomb below Mynydd Cefn Amlwch and the standing stone at Sarn Meyllteryn.thesweetcheat22/04/2016
Nice walk with the doglisa90514/02/2016
Parked at chapel and took path up its rhs side. Easy access to summit. Very windy on top. Trig point now sporting some strips and spots it appears it could have been yellow once. Excellent view point. Company: Soloiandesbottes01/01/2016
Parking at disused chapel in Garnfadryn (currently undergoing renovation or more likely conversion). Good path all the way to summit. Trig pillar 1.5m N of summit rock. Couldn't fault the views. On to Garn Bach.jonglew17/08/2015

W Jenx, park next to old chapel at GR278345. Follow lane then track up hillside, another (third of day) very easy, but again save for clear weather, great views all round. Hill fort on top impressive.nordicstar09/03/2012
Up from Garnfadryn where two familes of noisy kids playing. Couple of choughs playing like a couple of scruffy rags near the summit.Eddie02/08/2011
