From Bryn Moel. Rough grass and found track at 768920. (on hill-bagging map but surprisingly not OS). At LH bend went a few yards right then left up a faint, overgrown path to within about 50m of summit then fought through pines to summit. Descended NW and spent a lot of time fighting through the pines to regain the track. Followed track w then s before taking the smaller path nw. This was ok through the forest but disappeared on leaving the forest to leave a tedious trudge across tussocky terrain to find the path north.clivevilla24/03/2017
From Foel Uchaf 524m but track disappeared under felled forestry. Nightmare on a blistering day.dicky13/07/2013
