|Nice walk and splendid hill. Parked by metal gate with f/p sign at SJ 1602.2758. Walked NE up road for 150m to gate on R, through this then pleasant green lane beyond (bluebells and gorse in bloom at moment). Lane curves round to a col just before a house. Straight up steepening hillside into wood at top.||Aye Jimmy||18/05/2018|
|2/5 solo. Pretty little Hill, with a big rap as a Hump and Sub Marilyn. Nice wooded area near the top. Was perturbed by a dead baby mouse. Took a bit of navigating to find the path to the SW of here to head on to Mynydd y Briw.||tumpawumpa||15/08/2017|

|From west as others and as lots have said a fantastic hill especially on a sunny clear day.||Rob50||02/04/2017|
|Greeted near to the top by a ewe and a pair of very newly born lambs, no more than a couple of hours old. Stunning hill.||Alex C||14/03/2017|
|One of those do it just because its there hills?. Heck no!.
An absolute belter of a wee hill. Parked near the lakeside and walked up the unsuitable for motors track before heading up to the sub top at point 376m. The Gyrn looks an absolute beast from here and the panorama across Shropshire is Superb.
Climbing up to the main summit area you will bear witness to the power of the wind. Several Trees lie broken however there is a fine stand of Scots Pine around the summit. From certain spots the Aran ridge can be seen. Looked magnificent today gleaming with snow. I descended down the steep and stony semi ridge down to a decent track which led to the ruined hafod of Tyn y ffridd. The view back from here confirming that its been a worthwhile jaunt.
I continued down the track to extend the walk.then walking back down the quiet lane to Moelfre. Gyrn looking particularly impressive from here. Pick a nice day, take your time and enjoy.||stig_nest||10/02/2016|
