Parked N of Llithfaen at 35313 44001, up the Wales Coastal Path then left at the brow and left up the steps at the side of the incline. At the top go left around the mast fence and a rocky path goes up to the top. The stones were quite slippery today with low cloud and strong winds.clivevilla14/11/2018

Second ascent, this time via the old quarry with an interesting walk/ scramble through the impressive granite levels. Huge cairn on top, itself on a jumble of stones, worthy indeed of quarry men. Superbly set off against a blue sky streaked with cirrus. Descent via quarryman's path to aerial and then down aerial steps to col.Denise 09/04/2018

Fine rocky peak despite extensive quarrying on eastern flank. Climbed from Trefor via Bwlch yr Eifl track and returned same route early in morning. Climbed with Labrador. Cloudy but good views of North Lleyn coast, Anglesey and Snowdonia. Warning ... Cairn on summit seems rather precarious and unstable!jamessteel10001/08/2016

From private housing estate road at top south end of Trefor. Up steep lane and into walled track onto open hillside. Steep but straightforward up the east side of old quarry and aimed for radio mast, accessed by excellent staircase! Up final steep stretch from the south side over some slippery rocks. Spectacular summit.Campbell Singer22/01/2016
Up from Trefor harbour car park and around a bit of coast to the bwlch before heading up to this one. Made use of the steps to the mast before skirting the compound to the left and there is a distinct path through the bolders up to the top. Very windy on this one.Father Ted10/10/2015
With Hobbs family on birthday: car park at SH353440 - Bwlch yr Eifl - Yr Eifl N Top - Yr Eifl - Tre'r Ceiri - past Caergribin and back. Great walk and sea views. Interesting climb from bwlch - use metalled steps to hut, then little path round crags to top.Mark Jackson26/08/2015
Easy walk up to mast (with concrete steps), quite tricky scramble up rocks and boulders to very tall cairn. Back over deep heather and boulder field to upward path.arranc08/08/2015
