Marilyn 1 of 4 this evening. There is a path to the summit but I didn't find it till the top - you don't need to bash through the trees/undergrowth to get to the summit.assynt_bob31/05/2016
Fourth hill of the day with Laura W. Simple stroll along forestry roads then paths to summit adorned with memorial to crew of crashed Handley Page Halifax. Without knowing where to look we saw no sign of the aircraft. Just a tractor tyre and some idiots abandoned tent and sleeping bag.stig_nest24/01/2016

Warm and sunny, no summit views for trees, parked @ SJ079768iangalbraith04/07/2015
In North Wales for the day. Did Great Orme first then walked up here from Marian Cwm and taking in Marian Ffrith on the same day. This is quite different from most Marilyns as the summit is densely wooded. Never thought we'd find the summit, but pushed through the brambles and there is was. Incredibly quiet and quite spooky up there. Nice meal at the Blue Lion in Cwm on the way home.Lazylizzie26/06/2015
from parking area to EThearlaichdubh22/03/2015
A good easy walk through the woods & a good SOTA activation.G4OOE23/02/2015
From Mariam Cwm, followed Offa's NT.rhalstead26/12/2014
Trip from Meliden. Did Marian Frith was expecting rain but pushed ahead! Took a while to find summit. Got lost on way down, saw lots of pheasants and oil drums? was getting a bit worried but found road to Cwm and Dyserth. happy to bag a Marilyn! one which ive seen from my town for many years but never ventured up!mattcymru16/10/2014
Nice quiet tick on the way back from N Wales. You can also tick the Aircraft crash site book too.mindlessflogger16/03/2014
First hill of the year. I was fearful as the forecast warned of very stormy weather but I think I hit a relatvely calm window. Top now has a giant tyre as well as the memorial. Met some people dressed as druids!Father Ted03/01/2014
Climbed from the forest track from the Offas dyke trail. Nice woodland. Stay on the track until you reach a junction, turn left past the pool and then right onto a woodland path upto the summit. The woodland is very attractive and so makes an interesting change compared to other more exposed summits. I saw some gorgeous purple fungi, took a picture and realised i'd dropped my compass 3/4 of the way up so i almost did this summit twice!!Dazingdale27/10/2013
Parked in wide gateway at SJ 079768. Less than a 15 minute walk to the summit. Operated for SOTA with Geoff M6PYG, we both made nine contacts each on VHF.G4OBK (Phil)03/09/2013
Last Marilyn in my home region 30C. Nearby summit Moel Hiraddug is highly recommended if you actually want to get a good view of the area.Alex C15/08/2013

Used same route as nordicstar - a pleasant walk in the woods. My last Welsh Marilyn - on to the Humps now!Chris Peart12/10/2012
Spooky vibe on this hill in early evening with spider carvings and ropes hanging around for no obvious reason.Matt Hicks19/09/2012
Not much to see because of the tree cover though the memorial to G-AIHU made it worth the visit.heavyhorses09/09/2012
From CP at 079768, followed track until forks, take left up hill for 100m and faint path on right up hill to logical highpoint through trees. Follow trail for several hundred yards to clear highpoint/cairn. Back by return.nordicstar19/05/2012
With Andres, on Offa's Dyke, from Marian Cwm. Nice mild day.cat.cymru29/03/2012
Plenty of parking at the road to the east. Nice forest paths to the top, even though I did lose my way on the way up.The Team22/03/2012
had to evade local farmer who was feeding his pheasants!!Angelfon05/09/2011
From 079768. Track and then path to top. Note forest track conpletely circles the hill (unlike my 1:25K). Shortest route is the left branch at 0762776852, then Right onto good path 0757076772 which gently rises to summit.tim74701/09/2011
Parked 079768. Track and then path to top. Memorial to flight crew at the top.chrisbien12/04/2011

From Bwlch over frozen track and path. Short.Eddie23/02/2010
Fairly easy to find if you head uphill at each turn.clivevilla24/01/2010
Memorial cairn for Halifax which crashed in 1947. Agree - Stump of fallen tree nearby is highest point.PeteF17/01/2010
Highest point was probably a fallen tree near the cross in memory of the aircrash victims.signyred04/12/2009
