Via the big masty thing (apologies for the technical jargon here) - then deep heather - crossed the bwf where it had fallen over.maknipe09/06/2020
Via mast track to north. Area partially felled - just to south of both tops. A good track leads N-S between tops (NU 1376 0955) and the ride from the open access land leading to this is in the felled areacarole engel17/08/2019
Both tops done plus the trigAdrian12/10/2018

As others, track to mast (much rubbish at side) then over to fence. Fence SSE to gates, grassy ride to W to road. N along this short way to RHW's 'new hollow' - now a small tarn. Will be picturesque when vegetation grows. W summit on banking on far side. Then pushed through trees to E summit at side of overgrown ride. Through trees to regain fence then visited trig, passing three boundary stones on the way.Aye Jimmy18/06/2016
Same approach as RHW, then across fence at boundary stone at 13799,09838. From there a vague gap in the forestry led to RHW's east top, which coincides with the 253m spot height on OSCrib Goch03/03/2016
From nne, locked gate, road to mast, mapped rides from SE of summit, main summit by very new hollow by very new stone road. 50m fight/crawl to East summit then narrow ride ne to forest edge with BS 'NAM' Saw trig pillar didn't revisitRHW10/10/2015
