5/9 Marilyn. From highpoint parking to the west. Over moorland via good and mainly dry path. Fine views.N.Morters24/07/2020
From parking near the 404 SH. This was a horribly wet ascent, accompanied by very strong winds so not really enjoyable.NormanW24/02/2020
Walk across Golden Road starting near Mynachlogddu with M & R.TeamEak19/01/2020
With E. From car park off B4329. Along paths by forest edge up to summit. Dry underfoot. An easy walk. Great views in all directions. Cloudy and a slight breeze made it ideal walking conditions. Nice to bag our last of the 13 Welsh historic county tops. Tea and cake at Caffi'r Sgwar, Maenclochog to celebrate.Beeliner18/07/2019
From roadside in village up through the field and onto the main path to the summit past the forest. Very misty with a constant drizzle which became quite the downpour at the top. No views whatsoever, but a good climb, 90mins up and down.Stuzinho29/05/2019
From large car park in Rosebush. Very good paths right to summit. 85 minutes return.Crib Goch29/04/2019

A disappointing top coming after the nicer ones to the east. Did as part of a traverse of the Presellies from Crymach to Newport.Alan Moore02/01/2019
From parking at SN 074321. A boggy section along the N edge of the forest can be avoided by using two stiles to access a hardcore track on the S side of the forest fence.Isbjorn13/11/2018
From the west starting at road pass. Clear day with lines of sight to Snowdon and Devon. Tried to cut through the forest on the way in, with negative consequences.Topographer5728/09/2018

From the National Park car park at the summit of the B4329. A bit of bog trotting alongside the forest, then more to follow towards the summit. A good path all the way. Foggy, so no views, sadly.Gill11/01/2018

From big car park, 075322. Dry, sunny, warm and great views.iangalbraith04/07/2017
Parked at the bealach between Cerrig Lladron and Foel Cwmcerwyn. Bagged Cerrig Lladron first, returned to the car for some lunch and then climbed Foel Cwmcerwyn. The bridleway marked on the map seems to be patchy, but there's a well worn, if somewhat boggy, path to the summit. With Keith and baby Ross.islamidget03/07/2017
Quick blast out up to the summit as the sun was setting! Stunning views of the surrounding countryside and coastline. Lovely way to finish off a nice few days camping in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.Gerry the Ranger18/06/2017

Easy parking at Bwlch-gwynt (SN 07521 32187). Followed bridleway west to harvested plantation corner at Pen Cisty then follow distinct path worn through boggy ground to summit.

Final hill of a two day South Wales Marilyn mission. From Bwlch Gwynt car park. A pretty wet climb with lots of squelchy bits. Nowhere difficult though. Summit reached in just over half an hour skirting around the felled forestry area en route. My last Welsh historic county top. Chatted with young couple at summit and confirmed route back for them. Descended direct to felled trees. A short section crossing the clear fell with care. Arrived back at car and had a nice chat with couple who had found their way back too.stig_nest16/09/2016
From SN 08538 29304 accompanied most of the way by a calling cuckoo. Track surprisingly soggy. Interesting latches on the gates. Pity the corrugated pub ar Rosebush is no more.Newton Maximus18/05/2016
