Within Sennybridge firing range (MoD). Do not approach when red flags are flying. See https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/sennybridge-firing-notice for firing times.webmasterblank
The first of an Epynt Eight session. Made use of the Christmas shut down of SENTA. No red flags flying so I MB'd straight up the old tarmac track to within the sight of the summit. Thick mist all day.Rob Rees27/12/2019
4/4: In thick mist just before sunset. Drove to Brum to visit Tom & Helen after. Rounsfell27/12/2019
Approach from E, initially on 'The Epynt Way'.ger14/04/2019
The last non-firing day of the Christmas & New Year break according to the published schedule. A simple walk from viewpoint like most others and the concrete marker easy to find in the small fenced off area. All quiet but all rather unsatisfying too.milimana06/01/2019
From SN 963467. Track to summit is on military firing range and the red flag cannot be seen from the starting point.Isbjorn12/11/2018
From viewpoint up road. Came from south and thought I was off range until I got to fenced off area at summit. Red flag round corner out of site!SS16/08/2018
Parked at viewpoint, up left hand military road. Army phone lines don't seem to work but firing times posted on gov.uk site for this range. High cloud, drizzle but good long distance views.iangalbraith20/07/2018
Parked at viewpoint car park then used RoW from B4519 towards Pen Tri Chrugiau but very little to follow and would have been better on the military road. Then long sensible way round to Twyn Rhyd-car and then to Twyn Rhyd-car South Top before return over damp moorland to Mynydd Epynt and then B4519.Dugswell230/12/2017
Bagged this the tough way after having already done the three Tumps to the southwest.Alex C30/12/2017
17km walk over Pen Tri Chrugiau, Twyn Rhyd-car, Twyn Rhyd-car S Top & Mynydd Epynt. With Adrian, Alex, Doug & Jon.Twice Brewed30/12/2017
Very quick bag on the way to bigger & better mid-Wales peaks. Nice view though.NotReallyABagger22/07/2017
Checked ahead with Sennybridge Training Area when firing times were (01874635599, useful since they don't post the times online anymore)and took a Sunday afternoon stroll to the summit. The summit isn't worth shouting about, but great views from the carpark and satisfying since that completed region 32A for me. With Keith and baby Ross.islamidget11/06/2017
Quick wander up the track from the road. Fenced off to protect the cairn which is hidden under vegetation. The concrete summit marker is alsmost overgrown now.Neolith30/04/2017
A short walk in the rain and wind with zero visibility. Summit within a fenced off tumulus. Gate was open so could have driven. Went to the two tumps on the other side of the road afterwards.Herbert Anchovy22/02/2017
A later afternoon bag after doing a much longer walk up Pen-y-Garn Goch than planned. Parked in the viewing layby and a quick stroll up here on a non-firing day. Little stone pillar marks the top.Father Ted27/11/2016
Really thick fog on summit. Parked in car park at viewing point and quickly nipped up track to summit, ¼ mile each way. Looks like car park is start of 2nd stage of Epynt Way and track is part of PROW http://www.epyntway.org/sites/default/files/Map_10.pdfSteveSmith23/11/2016

Walked from viewpoint to the observation post. Operated on VHF for SOTA from there in the rain so kept the gear dry.G4OBK (Phil)08/12/2015

A massive hill, fortunately for bagging the top is near the road and the edge so you get any easy walk and a viewChinnockC30/03/2002
Last of 7 'easy marilyns 'drive and dash around S.W /Mid Wale after JG leaders meeting on Anglesey at HMS Indafitagble - a shore base. Slept in car-rocking in wind. Some remote lovely valleys. suffering again from a re-occurrence of a tooth infection-drugged. Dropped a wheel over a ditch here when parking for short walk -one wheel in mid air ! Had to build up the ground beneath it to enable me to drive off!.Then drove to Alan & Jo's in Knutsford (Rob, Lesley, Robin there)Chris Pearson22/01/2000
