Up the track from the chapel, followed a track through the low gorse bushes to the summit. A lovely bunch of choughs there! Went straight over to join the coastal track then stayed at the hedge boundary to return to the track. Lovely views.pog10010/08/2020

P near summit of Mynydd Mawr. Used coastal path. Visited Mynydd Anelog, then on return walk visited a little top at SH1440426120 (Llanllawen Fawr?- P20ish)& finally Mynydd Mawr. Quite a pleasant walk-good coastal scenery.ger16/07/2019

A splendid walk with Twice Shy (Alex) from the chapel. Up via the Pwlldefaid path to the east (one short boggy section) and then the cottages below the hill. Nice grassy path to the top, and lovely views. Back via the western path and track.Gill09/03/2018
Feel more at ease with this hill now, after the revisit, because the first time I was up here was before I'd started bagging. Stunning views eastwards right back to high snow covered Snowdonian peaks. And, of course, Ynys Enlli, which we'd only just returned from. Very memorable morning indeed.Twice Shy09/03/2018
From chapel parking to SSW, followed tracks and paths to summit.rhalstead24/12/2017
Pleasant circular walk on well marked paths from Uwchmynydd chapel on a very windy day - great viewpoint though the day wasn't clear. Promoted Marilyn not in my original list.JohnIvor14/10/2017
This was to be a great day Marilyn bagging on the Lleyn in calm weather conditions while my friends got wet walking near Tryfan. I parked near the chapel and had an easy walk up from there. I met another Marilyn bagger from Scotland at the top and had a nice chat on the way back down.Father Ted07/10/2017
With K from Chapel to S. Nice hillAshley25/07/2017
A few more days off work so I reasoned it was time to tidy up my North Wales Marilyns. The expected rough weather scuppered any chance of boating to Bardsey but I decided to visit the missing Lleyn tops anyway. First up turned out to Myn. Anelog. This because when I arrived in Porthmadog a biblical style thunderstorm rolled in. The weather had cleared by the time I got to Aberdaron but the tops were still in mist. Easy climb from the Uchmynydd chapel. Limited views when the mist parted.stig_nest19/07/2017
Easily up from chapel as others and path to summit above top craft cottage. In mist so no views.Lionel Bidwell15/07/2017
Space for several cars near chapel at SH155263 (note that there is another chapel shortly before you get to it). Went up via the track which starts just W of the chapel and heads NW. Circuit via the coastal path and coves on the way back.webmaster26/06/2017
From the church, up the lane to it's left, then gated track to self-catering cottage. More gates and paths to open hillside and straight up ridge behind another cottage. Saw nowt due to low cloud.Minto10/06/2017

Parked at chapel in Uwchmynydd, along the lane then path as described by other contributors.Rob5027/04/2016
Parking area by phone box and chapel in Ystolhelyg Bach. Well marked f/p towards Pwlldefaid, then below summit area ascending to the right of two hillside houses. What appears to be heather from a distance is actually short dense gorse, but a way through develops. Last Welsh and English Marilyn.Aye Jimmy17/04/2016
Do not park north on strip of land north of Pwlldefaid farm, as a quagmire. Had to get local farmer to tow me out. Not the easiest task first thing on New Year's Day. Thanks Tomas. Once out and safely parked further along road walked up to summit and enjoyed the views of Bardsea Island. Never visited these peaks before enjoyed all six of marilyns done today.

Late afternoon in December after working in area-in mist with no views. Took track from chapel and fairly easy to make out path to summit although it involved some doubling back by isolated cottages. Will have return on a clear dayMark Sims16/12/2015

Just enough space to park at start of the footpath to the east. Climbed up paths with K, Megs and Xan for a summit picnic before heading off to the beach at Porth Oer where they were filming the opening scenes of The Last Kingdom. Stunning views.Herbert Anchovy09/04/2015

This hill promoted in July and missed by Kate and I then. Drove from home, left car at 164268 (12:40) and walked along road, up past farm and then hillside to top. Hazy but fair views. Back via NW end of ridge & back to farm; finish 13:50dbb06/10/2013
A 55 min return walk from Umchmynydd chapel. Delightful summit, easy paths through colourful heath, gorse. Brilliant colour in the late afternoon sunshine to round off a great day- we'd been on Bardsey earlier. The views showed what beautiful unspoilt countryside the Lleyn peninsula has,not a windfarm in sight.Special thanks to SOTA bagger Mick Coad, who informed me of Mynydd Analog's promotion BEFORE I went on holiday in Caernarfon with my brother Pete. Pete was especially grateful, closing in on all the Welsh Marilyns with Bardsey visited today.pwheeler18/09/2013
slightly misted, fascinating metal animal sculptures adorning the gate and approaches to the house just below its east side. Also, being day of the full moon, my bag was followed by mad dash across the Pennines to join 'Encircling the Land with Sacred dance' circle dancing in Leo, that evening, held for first time in Selby Abbey!! Two bits of madness in one day!!vegibagger21/08/2013

Parked to NE just passed farm track which was then followed to gain hillside. Steep direct ascent was rewarded with a good view of Bardsey Island. Saw Martin Richardson's Van but managed to avoid him this time. Looks tall enough to be a full Marilyn.Dugswell205/03/2011
