Having weighed up the weather forecast we ditched the Peak District and headed for the Clwydian range. 3 marilyns and 2 humps targeted.Theres a very usefully placed layby near Pen y Coed to the East. From there a short yomp up sheepie fields and past some mining relics led to an easy stroll up to the unmarked summit. For such a short walk the view is an absolute sensation.
