from garn ddu new fence to hop, back same wayunderhill31/08/2018
From Garn Ddu. Rough tussocks ground before easier pasture like terrain. An abundance of shake holes. Walked a long way north on descent to avoid walking along the busy main road in wet conditions. Arrived back at Feddw lay by for coffee and Welsh cakes from the greasy spoon. Merthyr completed.Campbell Singer04/04/2018
From Garn Ddu. Descent back to parking at Feds. Raced Dad to the top but he won due to knowing there was a duplicate summit. Drat.Jemma Singer04/04/2018
Parked at end of Crabtree Walk in Trefechan. Up through golf course to open access land. Tricky differentiating between 460m and 461m spot heights. Oddly, trig pillar and much large shelter cairn at the 460m point - made it look higher.jonglew08/09/2016
