Walk round the peninsula from parking on NT land by Ty Newydd. Summit reached in about 10 mins but the walk above Trwyn Cilian and Trwyn Llech-y-doll was worthwhile, indeed a delight on a sunny, crystal clear afternoon. With brother, Petepwheeler17/09/2016

Towards end of long Wales Coast path day, Pwllheli - Cilan. Light was going and tired legs, not the most exciting of tops but good coastal views onwards towards the tip of the Lleyn. We saw a pod of 7 or 8 dolphins off the coast near St Tudwal's Islands, which was a major highlight.thesweetcheat11/03/2016
From end of minor road to NE, plenty of grassy parking spaces. Good grassy paths over flat heathery ground. Trig pillar and covered reservoir in summit proximity.jonglew16/08/2015

Parked at SH294246 but could have driven nearer - terrific views.Chris Peart19/01/2014
Parked in Hell's Mouth car park (SH 285 267). Walked along beach south-east, and then took Lleyn Coastal Path onto promontary. Path diverts inland due to blocked access, but rejoins cliffside over National Trust heathland. Then good path to trig point. With Andy and James T.marktrengove19/10/2013
9.32 am Full Moon day and would never have believed that within an hour I'd be lost in Mist at the next trig half of the way towards Mynydd Anelog. Would never have believed I could get quite lost and disorientated in mist on Mynydd Penarfynydd after just a 50m climb up a grassy bank and return straight down what I thought felt like the fourth side of a rectangle. Stupidly left map and compass in the car. Seriously lost for about 30-40 mins. Had to reverse my direction twice and quite amazed and a little bit freaked out by how easy it was. Clear now that it was not simply three sides of a rectangle that I'd walked and if been trying to come down the other side of the ridge and was walking east and south towards cliffs instead of west North west to my car. Unnerving for a while and back in the car looking at the map realised that the ridge does a distinct dogleg!!vegibagger21/08/2013
From SH 293 245. Quizzed by a local resident because I was taking photos(!).summitsup19/07/2013
Straightforward bag after getting off the bus at Sarn Bach. Previously walked this section of coast path in Winter 2008.Alex C01/07/2013

Parked at T-junction to make this into a GR8 coastal walk as the sun was out here while cool and cloudy elsewhere. Trig is in a dip on an grassy bank beside the track with ground higher to north of trig.Dugswell205/03/2011
Easy walk in absolutely foul weather. Did the nearby geocache which is in a nicer position than the trig.signyred06/06/2009
