Parked at golf club, permission readily given.SteveG10/01/2019
From Ebbw Vale - wet, windy low visabbo000115/12/2018
Up past golf course with its “grass carpets” which are very green compared to the yellow straw which is the golf course!elizyanne14/07/2018
From SO178092 - initially following the old tramway. Also visited the alternative HP.summitsup06/04/2018
Parking space near the Golf Course at 187104 on the bend at the end of a BOAT which has been blocked with large boulders, so no worries about vehicle access. Followed the track up the hill, very easy with nice views. I went to the highest point of the track, and so overshot the trig, but no worries, it's a pleasant walk on the plateau.Gill23/02/2018
From the multistory car park in Ebbw Vale. Folllowed sign to Newtown over bridge. Straight on at Methodist chapel then right and up minor road, left up path to disused quarry and up by top of golf course. The upper reaches of this hill have been horribly scarred and disfigured by the activity of off-road motorbikes, really ruining what could be rather an attractive little hill.lenman30/12/2017
3/5M From coalbrookvale track to farm, then path of sorts up through hillside to gain high track to the top.robertphillips11/11/2017
With: hb; Parked at SO189105 and followed byway through golf course on to ridge then cut across to summit trig. Returned by same route. Very easy route.Ian Baines20/08/2017
From Westside in Blaina. The path shown on the map didn't exist, so I just went up the reclaimed grass slope and then steeply to the flat top. Then down south-west to Waun-Lwyd but it was difficult to follow the rights-of-way.Alan Moore16/06/2017
From Nantyglo. Straightforward. With TJBtrimarc202/05/2017

Repeat ascent with Denise. Ascent from Ebbw Vale having left car to fend for itself in the town's multi storey car park (free). Snow on the summit.RichardM28/02/2017
From the free multi storey carpark in central Ebbw Vale, in snow.Trig on summit area, HP very close by. Muddy grass and heather.Denise 27/02/2017
From golf club which apparently is the highest in the UK (really?). Track snakes its way right over the hill which makes you wonder why the motorcrossers feel the need to tear the rest of the hill up. Headed over to the trigpoint which was guarded by a muddy moat and a moo who didnt want to leave. Pillar is in a bit of a state and looking at the flush bracket its clear the damage is deliberate. Ground to the SE looks higher but probably isnt.stig_nest15/09/2016
From Golf Road in Nantyglo up to the summit and back. Fantastic view. With baby Ross.islamidget24/06/2016
Parked in Nantyglo and walked up via track across golf course, then direct to summit. Return via track to east side of hill which gives the best views.Cas-gwent13/04/2016

From off road parking at Coalbrookvale w Jenx. Follow ROW to farm then tracks thru woods and up above landscaped former mine areas. Good zig zag tracks can be found leading to plateau area. Wet and windy on top, nice trig point. back more directly down steep ground top lake and rejoined way in.nordicstar20/02/2016
Not a bad hill. Saw new lambs. The farmer described them as a bit early.jenx20/02/2016
Steep walk straight up from the east into a covering of snow.Neolith15/02/2016
Parked in layby (SO 19442 09150)on A476 just south of Coalbrookvale turn off. Followed footpath Llanerch y-pant then zig-zagged to summit plateau rather than straight up. Steep but safe with care descent towards Chapelhouse then back to van along same footpath.SteveSmith08/01/2016
