A very pleasant walk in the sun. Up the track, through the gate, then a bee-line to the trig, hopping over a fence above a turf wall. Splendid views.Gill12/01/2018
3rd of 4th Marilyn this evening. By the usual means. A black Toyota was parked at the gate so an alternative spot was found 50m up the road. Another good view despite the gathering dusk.stig_nest05/08/2017
Quick walk up from the nearby lane. In that time it started hammering it down, got me completely soaked, and stopped again :)Neolith30/05/2017
One car already parked to SW and I had to block gate then leg it out and back in case farmer wanted to come through, but trig always in sight and it's no more than a 2 minute run.Mark Sims25/01/2017
Adequate off road parking for two cars near gated entrance to PROW and access to Pen-crug-melyn (SN 50143 28245). Barbed wire fence on southern boundary but trig point on Tumulus and highest point can be approached up steep bank from the east.SteveSmith25/11/2016
From minor road to SW. Less than 5 mins.geralddavison01/05/2016

Most of the effort getting from Talley was driving via Mynydd Figyn to the gate at 501282. Driving was more stressful and less absorbing than walking. At the gate,there was another hillbagger in car. Just room for the two cars. Quick 15 min bag in trainers as a downpour looked imminent, but- as on all these few days- I only caught a few flakes of snow. pleasant top.pwheeler27/04/2016
From S - parking for 1 car.jimbloomer22/01/2016

Short walk from SSW, not very satisfying. Top of old mine 3m from trig. Known as 'Lan' to triggers.Aye Jimmy23/07/2008
You can see the trig point from the road. Best to go past it and go to the top from the back where there is a gate.clivevilla02/02/2008

Started in Brechfa and walked south over Banc-y-Daren via roads. It was then intended to travel via footpaths, however these did not exist on the ground so used roads to 400m from the summit.garyhoney03/01/2003
