A lot easier than expected. From Celyn Isaac. Climb steep road and, a sit levels off, turn sharp left along tarmaced lane. This swings right, up some stone steps at the top of which is a small pedestrian gate. It just about opens leading to an avenue of stumpy trees, at the end of which there is an easy route up pasture to the top. No bog or swamp.Campbell Singer31/08/2019
2/2 Not the easiest tump, from Celyn Isaf, over a few gates and barbed wire fences to get there, thankfully no waterlogging this time of yearpenbet26/07/2019
Parked near school and pub to NE and followed FP. Into pasture, after some descent took track into wood by stream, should then have gone through broken gate and traversed upwards, which was the way I returned. Tree and memorial stone at HP.PeterD05/08/2018
Parked on minor road just before it narrows to a farm track at ST012870. Tricky access due to waterlogging. Lovely small top with earthworks and memorial plaque under the sole tree.jonglew11/01/2017
Parked near school. Not to easy to reach top but easy route back following tracks to farm.Dusty08/03/2016
Parked in Cely Isaf, Thomastown. Walk up lane, across fields following tracks to summit. Summit feature is a stone beneath tree and next to a memorial stone.Ramblingpaul25/10/2015
