Parked to N @SO005653 and walked down track to estate woods then through this to base of hill. Then straight up to point 442. Returned the sae way - saw no one. Very hazy so views limited - it was difficult making out Gwastedyn Hill opposite!robphys16/10/2005

From 1st to 2nd short walk. Decided to go the long way back taking in the trig point. The paths were tricky to follow through saturated fields and did in one instance disappeared altogether. Still completed both tops so shouldn?t have to return.garyhoney18/02/2002
