Climbed with my Californian friend from the old farmhouse near Llyn Brenig. Round the lake, thru the forest and cut up across the moor to reach the trig and good views of the Clwydian hills. Both stopped frequently to eat the bilberries!John Eley29/07/2017
Me and Alf. From minor road to the East.jrj21/02/2017
I chose the same way of ascent as most others, just be aware though. As i was sitting on the tailgate of the car changing my boots, after the walk, a police car come to a rather dramatic halt. Apparently I had been seen acting suspiciously !!!! Whether somebody monitors the cctv cameras (that can be seen mounted on the masts) or it was somebody passing by i don't know! I only crossed the land for a matter of about 50m to a gate into a farmers field and followed the fence on the field side. Im just glad the nice policeman didn't search me and find the sticks of dynamite!thenomad10/02/2017
