marktengove's route. Eezy peezy.jonglew08/09/2017
Directions as Mark Trengove, got our campervan parked in the spot so plenty of room. Up the hill was ok, however in descent clear a farmer at Foel Ganol who didn't look like he wanted us there, so cut back hard right towards the ROW which we had strayed from earlier, quite inadventently...nordicstar20/07/2017
All went quite well using The route from the north.jenx20/07/2017
After parking next to gateway of English retired policeman from Wiltshire called Bob and next to his curious herd of twenty mohair goats, zig zagged up the grassy bracken trackvegibagger15/06/2017

From Foel-Isaf farm track north of hill for less than 100m before taking ancient track to sharp right and then zig zag up over easy pasture and onto moorland top.Campbell Singer22/01/2016
As marktrengrove. Some frisky cows near the top but they ran away when I got near.clivevilla28/10/2015
Parked in small lay-by near road junction at SH 44310 51030 - room for 1-2 cars, if parked carefully. Took lane east, then lane south towards Foel Isaf farm. After about 100m, turned west onto overgrown grassy track at SH 44875 51160. Once over gate ascended through woodland and bracken to broken fence by oak tree at SH 44753 51046. Once over, joined grassy track that zig-zagged up the hill to the plateau. Once over another broken barbed wire fence it was an easy stroll to the summit. Returned much the same way.

Sunny day tidying up my remaining Lleyn tumps. Just have Criccieth Castle left to do now.Alex C21/04/2015
Intended to go in from the N, but missed the turning in Llanyfni. Very pleasant ascent from the lane end at the S: 3 gates.GordonAdshead09/04/2015
Missed this one after supposedly clearing the area last year. So good to gather it in.Colin Crawford10/03/2015
From SE via track and fieldsChris Peart02/01/2015
Walked up track from the south and then headed straight for the summit when a gate is reached at the high point.DARRENG29/05/2014
From N at start of farm track .chalky195314/04/2014
Final trip to Lleyn Peninsular to visit this HuMP. Parked at 443510, along lane and up on green zig zags from the house. Mistook way down and passed in front of the house (on a right of way). The couple said that they had just bought the place and found it lovely, but that they didn't see many walkers. Hasn't anyone told them of this recent promotion which involved mainly walking off ROW's?arranc08/04/2014
Parked easily at beginning of track to SE. Along track then through a gate. Then pasture all the way through open gates.destaylor17/03/2014
Track from south and then easy gates to summit. Looks like this is gonna become a fully fledged Hump, so trying to keep ahead of the game.Martin R13/02/2014
A track from the north after the house access delivers the way to gain height with just one poor fence to climb to gain the fort and the summit. Lovely views this morning on my second P30 of five with Chris Watson.Dugswell225/11/2012
