Llandewi was pretty full of parked cars as the funeral of a farmer's wife was taking place. Followed the ROW NNE to SO 11108 69542 then followed the ridge ESE/ENE for the views to a missing gate at SO 11433 69605 and on to the summit. Returned the same way apart from going direct between the listed grid refs.Jim.Fothergill28/08/2018
From Llandewi, up ROW which was evident, to its W side. Over new barbed wire fence- unecessarily- to reach extensive and impressive hill fort and unmarked summit. By going down its S side we went through a gap in the fence and down a little valley to rejoin the ROW. Pleasant, on a warm day, high cloud with a few breaks. Good visibility.

Easy parking in village Llanddewi, then find the track behind the houses at the north end. Then follow your nose straight up. Lots of brand new fencing on summit.dicky05/04/2015
