I enjoyed this hill apart from the horribly muddy start , the track having had monsoon conditions and much farm traffic. Visited the trig on the way to the high point. It was wet .NormanW13/03/2020
From SE near Newhouse, bisecting the 2 Llyn’s via farm track then path to trig and summit just beyond.N.Morters17/01/2020

Fine spell of very early spring weather so I just had to take a day off and head up into the hills. Lovely area too to find some much needed peace and quiet.Alex C26/02/2019
Parked 012968 on side of road opposite gate to start walk up between lakes. Followed path to gate, mistakingly ended up on wrong side of fence but corrected on the way back down. Super windy at the top! Awesome views.Hippy7728/07/2018
Like others, from the Llyn Fawr NR car park. I took the bridleway to the N of the lake, over the fence at the start of the access land, then HP and trig. Almost trod on a fox- well startled- asleep or just sheltering in the sedges from the cold wind. Then back down the ridge and S of lake. Good access/ ROWs and an enjoyable hill.pwheeler05/02/2018
A nice walk by the usual route between the two lakes, the view sadly spoiled by a lump of grit in my eye.Gill02/11/2017
Walked up from Bronffynnon on the roads to the path between the two lakes. From their easy stroll up to the summit.garyhoney28/08/2017
What a lovely little hill. Little - only because there is not much uphill walking to do if you drive up to the nature reserve by the lakes, just a mile across a gorgeous green ridge with some rocky outcrop and gates and stiles, no BWF. Bagged the trig first before continuing up to the high point beyond.Father Ted20/08/2017
6/7 Sixth of seven on wet cold misty day ((Newyd Fynyddog/Twmpath Melyn/Bryn Amlwg/Mynydd Pistyll-du/Yr Allt/Garreg-Hir/Yr Allt)Fergalh14/01/2017

from roadside between the 2 lochans to SE. Nice little ridge to fine hill.Thearlaichdubh13/09/2015
From lakes car park at 012968 were a sheep dog was guarding his sheep in the pen. He hadn't moved an inch when we returned from the fine hill top.mindlessflogger19/06/2015
With Jenx, 3/5 today on a great crisp clear day. Usual parking spot between the lakes. Room for several cars on verge. Easy walking, great views with exception of the increasing number of wind turbines in the area. Nice rocky outcrops on the ridge, visible from miles around - as we later saw.nordicstar13/12/2014
Lovely walk from SO 012968, passing Llyn Mawr. Activated for SOTA on VHF.G4OBK (Phil)11/08/2014

Roadside parking at SO01209 96803. Ascent via ROW until access land, and direct to summit.Sprog23/08/2012
nice top - circular walk from the bwlchgigglejon04/08/2010
The nearest hill on any list near my caravan. We decided not to do the easy route up between the lakes and instead walked cross country. The paths were practical non-existant in places and newly built fence lines meant that i had some compass practice.Cap_Thunderbolt01/08/2010
Took the tour of nature reserve first before climbing this good hill in warm hazy sunshine.Dugswell224/04/2010
1.15 miles from the road each way. Lovely walk.clivevilla20/11/2009

Very pleasant walk from SE through fields past Llyn Mawr. Fortunately the path takes one past the summit to approach it from behind, then to the trig on the way back.Aye Jimmy21/07/2008

very nice little walk via the nature reserve.lots of birdsDARRENG15/12/2007
An unexpected little gem. Pleasant approach between 2 lakes and a rocky little ridge up to a 360 degree view. 3 lots of windfarms visible but didn't really spoil the view - they seem made for this sort of terrain.signyred13/11/2007
