Parked in large National Trust car park. Walked up through forest. Heavy shower on arrival on summit luckily cloud above the summit so could enjoy the views. Excellent peak. Very prominent for miles. Company: Soloiandesbottes17/10/2016
Walked up from the new car park, then down the north side and back through the landslip and woods. Perfect short walk.Neolith15/10/2016
From massive new NT carpark. Easy but very eroded path to nice ridge walk.jenx06/10/2016
Repeat from the same CP to south, now National Trust improved with pay and display :-( Luckily used our NT membership to avoid the toll. Nothing new of the path, just as eroded so where are the fees going? Lovely viewpoint at end of day following 6 previous Marilyns in a row from Hegdon Hillnordicstar06/10/2016
From the National Trust car park, through the woods on the west side, then up through the bracken just south of the cliff, to the summit pillarMariana Trench17/07/2016

5/7 From Pant t tyle. Return within 50 mins which suprised me. Looks super steep. A cracking wee hillstig_nest11/03/2016
Shorter approach route from the north, starting at SO 33947 19314. Just about parking for one on corner opposite Pen-y-parc. Fairly gentle ascent (to start)easy path to follow through gorse as rate of ascent increases. Very steep descent down NE corner, to ensure circular route, then on to Pant-y-tyle before returning to Pen-y-parc along roadSteveSmith06/01/2016
Very enjoyable hill. Parked in good car park to south, walked along west side of hill, then a steep pull up the north ridge to trig point and a return along the length of the ridge.Cas-gwent18/12/2015
From National Trust car park to the south, onto the ridge and then descent to the east before rounding the hill to return on the western slope.welshyboyo02/12/2015
Quick up and down on return from Cardiff with weather threatening. Good path (dry) all the way and excellent views to east (west was wet). And when I came down we'd beaten Japan!SS23/09/2015

National Trust parking area (SO32883 16416) Up waymarked footpath to summit.(PM)gerrybowes27/01/2015
A superb hill with great views each way. A muddy ascent from the car park at 329163. A very well spent walk of under 90 minutes.bolton27/01/2015
7/7 Last one of day, decided to get up and dwon quick so approcahed from north up steep side. Tough climb and even more difficult descent. Wonderful views due to elevationFergalh24/01/2015
The provision of car park makes this very popular. Fog hadn't cleared but it may almost be worth coming back to do again judging by the slopes either side of the path. Afterwards, we went on to look at Myarth, which didn't look very user friendly, so we went home. 9 ticks in three days but the best bit was Skenfrith Castle and Church.mindlessflogger04/01/2015
From National Trust parking area on B4521 Old Ross Road near Abergavenny (SO 32883 16416). Steepish ascent through wooded area then easy walk along the ridge to the summit. Clear paths throughout.david23020125/09/2014
Very muddy, glutinous, the lower parts of the path had been churned up by walkers after a wet spell. It was far worse today than 4 days earlier when we climbed the lower slopes in the pouring rain. The rain had washed away loose mud and the surface was reasonably firm and not churned up.Malcvolm27/05/2014
