Simple walk up featureless rough pasture from road jct to Mount Pleasant. Good mountain views, the Brecon Beacons more so than on nearer Mynydd Llangynidr as Cribin could clearly be made out. Bits of rubbish dumped along minor road at foot of hillpwheeler19/04/2018

From A4048 at SO 150 072. After the signpost and arrows low down it became a fight through the undergrowth. The descent to the north, to the cholera burial ground was far better.Alan Moore16/06/2017

Hollybush to Rhymney - paths awkward to follow on lower slopes but fine romp over frozen ground along the ridge. Derelict winding structure forlornly adorns the ridge to SE of summit.Smudge08/01/2011
