En passant.Chris Peart02/08/2019
Drove up on minor road from south; this included an unusual 1 mile stretch of single-track dual carriageway. From minor road, a 70m drive along decent track to trig point inside turning circle. (S)gerrybowes22/07/2019
They don't get much easier than this, even the car made it to the summit. Short drive from road along track to turning circle with high point and trig at centre. Frosty, -5C and not a breath of wind. Great views of the Black Mountains to the S.RichardM04/01/2019
Trig by road within tussocky sheep pasture near pine plantation. Possible to drive on short track.Denise 03/01/2019
'Road access only' only across the moor today. Squadies in the army Landrover with big aerial couldn't be bothered with a biker running over the summit.Eddie12/09/2018
Drive-up with Doug and AlexTony J31/12/2017
Revisit with Alex and Tony by driving in from the south before heading north to Gwibedog Tump trig and the German Village.Dugswell231/12/2017

With K, M and RM. Red flags flying, didn't linger.Ashley30/05/2016
Trig point by the roadsideMariana Trench02/05/2016
The sign at the start of the military road said road open and do not stop. I went up, stopped, walked the 10 or so yards to the trig and came back down. This road is not on my Garmin satnav.clivevilla29/12/2015
Drive up below web site shows firing times TP is damaged
Nice drive along military road and short walk to trigRamblingpaul26/08/2015
The drive through the ranges was more interesting than the top.Colin Crawford25/06/2015
4/13 Easy bag as military road was open briefly !Fergalh30/05/2015
Buy a Sherman Tank to reach this top perhaps? For £50,000 you can buy one off the web - amazing what ex-military stuff there is for sale. Or else await a non red-flying day to drive up in your normal day to day car passing through the firing ranges.Chris Pearson05/11/2014
Too wet & windy to go Nuttalling, especially after yesterdays soaking. Drive right up to trig so feel guilty about claiming bag. Still walked last 5m to take photo.SteveSmith20/02/2014
Near enough a roadside HuMP, but on a military road that is not always open to the public; today it was. Drove off the metalled road, right to the summit, so perhaps our easiest HuMP bagged and a hotine trig to sweeten it!jonglew20/07/2013
Drive up job, road was open according to MOD signs but as soon as I stopped and went to the Trig a spooky black 4x4 slowed and observed me...dicky05/01/2013
A drive up sub-Marilyn and trig with Phil Cooper and my Black Mazda 6. Red Flags were flying on this Sunday with a lot of military vehicles on the move which were all left hand drive.Dugswell218/11/2012
My Garmin Car Satellite Navigation led me a right dance as the 'military' road was not on it. From south take the road from Llywel and its an excellent road all the way. Easy parking.destaylor15/03/2012
Red flags flying but road was open, ignored the bit about stopping ,lolheavyhorses27/09/2011
