|Asked and was given willing permission to park at the kennels. Freed a daft sheep who had got wedged between two cattle feeders in an attempt to get to it's tiny lamb. All it needed was to discover it had a reverse gear. Steep climb up through forest. Good viewpoint.||Campbell Singer||03/04/2018|
|Parked at kennels. Nobody to ask but I saw the lady when I came down and she was friendly. Up the track through the farm and just kept taking the upward option and then rightwards.1.88 miles 45mins.||clivevilla||14/03/2018|
|Arrived at Mountain Ash by train. Didn't choose the most sensible way up as I wen't NE up past the cemetary and onto the adjacent hill as it was tricky to cross the ravine. Eventually got to a col then headed south and down through the woods to the trig point. After also visiting a nearby tricky geocache I came down a more sensible route and ended up by the cattery and then down to the station.||Father Ted||16/12/2017|
|Parked at cattery with owner's permission. Steep farm track before traversing up through conifers then out onto open hillside.||jonglew||09/12/2016|
