Parked at 92153 27123, down the track and across the stepping stones. Up the track which became a bracken bash before leaving it anyway for more bracken then emerging onto grassland for the final run to Fforest Fach N.Top. Kept west to avoid the valley for the traverse to Fforest Fach then worked my way down and back to the start.clivevilla29/07/2019

From column on N top, down for a mile over grassy moor and on compass to HP determined by GPS. Allegedly only 1m higher! Continued east to skirt a huge patch of bracken and down on grass to find a pleasant path leading straight to a second building, road and car.arranc18/09/2015
