Walked up from the club house on paths. Hill heavily scarred by trail bikes. Reckoned an area about 50 m south could be higher than the trig.Herbert Anchovy01/08/2020

From street parking on Inkerman Row, Blaina west side 19671 08399. Walked up via the drainage track and then right of way to summit plateau and then across a short pathless section to the trig. Under two mile and done in hour and half.WAYNE ROWLETT19/01/2020

From 187104. This hill is a complete mess, used by scrambler type motorbikes, also kids on ATVs doing donuts to churn up the ground. Also much plastic litter. Dismayed to find that there are so many litter louts in this part of beautiful Wales.NormanW06/10/2019
North ridge, tracks and paths from clubhouse. Heavy shower on the way down.Topographer5704/09/2019

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

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

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

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

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
