From Gopa Uchaf. Descended to a gate at the forest edge, to avoid barbed wire. Then followed fence on the forest side to a break in the trees at SN 73144 59092. A small path winds from there to the forest track. Followed tracks south, NE and south. The whole area around the summit is blocked by fallen trees, and I turned back on the firebreak on the northern side. Eventually found a steep track at SN 73786 58620 which soon petered out. Then worked my way up through the mature forest to the summit, which is also now in the midst of fallen trees. You need a GPS for this one now! Solo. Onwards to Esgair Ffrwd.marktrengove03/06/2018
