Parked E side of Pont Y Draethen. Followed river before turning SW and through Coed Craig Ruperra. Having seen Ruperra Castle turned NE to climb to summit. Returned down through woodland (generally N) to Draethen and road to car. Great viewpoint.Arbie14/03/2017
Parked at the forestry car park to the NE. My primary aim was to find a geocache hidden here and after that thought I would venture up to the summit. I'm glad I did as I now find its a Trump.Father Ted13/01/2017
