Parked on a grassy pull in by the fence then wandered down the lane, over the gate (Ripping my trousers on the way) and up to the summit. Stood a while admiring the Llantysilio ridge that I walked earlier in the day, then back to the car to escape the bitter wind!hillhiker03/03/2013
Like the man said from the gate and parking spot to the east. Couldn't be easier!simon and co04/01/2013
Parked in lay-by on A5104 W of Bryneglwys. Took lane steeply up past farm to join lane along ridge. Over bolted gate and so to un-defined summit - either rounded bump W of boundary line, boundary line itself, or spot about 10m east of barbed wire fence. A fine pastoral hill with good views.marktrengove25/11/2012
Could be either on fence line or in field depending whether you consider the raised bank on which the fence is sited to be man made.clivevilla27/09/2012
