Parking at the start of the bridleway to the north ... alt 387ft. Path eventually cuts across the field to a gate. Through the gate and directly to the summit. A trespass, but no houses to be seen from. 0.8 miles return, 131 ft ascent. 15 mins.moorsman03/03/2016

From NNW, RoW then gate. Showery morning, nice views to bigger hillsRHW17/05/2015
by FP from 232,338 although summit is well off the track in an adjacent field. Not access land so this one is a trespass. I made summit GR 23505,33268Crib Goch01/02/2015
Used the RoW to gain hillside and easy to summitnordicstar07/10/2014
With Jo, walk from Park Wood. Access gained from bridleway through gate at NY 23516 33489. Weather; high clouds, mild, good visibility. Top: grassy mound (NY 23527 33333) with a small protruding rock. (Another mound SW (NY 23506 33279) appears higher, but apparently is not). Good views, especially of Binsey.amblerbob10/01/2014
