1m high cairn on distinctive outcrop. Snow squall now passed over and views returned. Approached following forest boundary over very tussocky snowy ground from Garn Wen. Fast descent to civilisation in Llanwrtyd Wells completing a wild 18 mile round trip.Denise 17/03/2018
From Garn Wen over mix of rough and improved pasture initially making use of ATV track along forest boundary. Summit topped by nice cairn. Last of a hard day before easy descnt back to Llanwrtyd Wells.RichardM17/03/2018
Garn Wen up forestry tracks as others, across to Banc y Ddinas, down to road, under railway and up the ridge of Moel Bylchau. More or less straight down to car.clivevilla25/10/2017
Crossed from Garn Wen and returned the same way.Moorponder03/10/2017
Continuation of walk from Garn Wen. Descended north-east to a wide very boggy area, over a gate by a group of mature trees and then east (one barbed wire fence to tackle) to the fine summit. To descend, headed steeply down east by forest edge, then bracken thrash to a byway, which I took north past Dinas Mill back to the church car park. Solo.Man of Kernow105/11/2016
