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.

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
