Good parking at SJ160276carole engel10/06/2017
From WSW. Parking by marked footpath 200m SSW of your unmarked path. Lovely steep summit.jimbloomer20/04/2017
From west as others and as lots have said a fantastic hill especially on a sunny clear day.Rob5002/04/2017
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 C14/03/2017
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_nest10/02/2016
