From Bronaber, great little hill.Taz3801/08/2017
Parked by chapel to North 727 315, followed road then ascended from North along side of wall which leads to summit area. Lots of ferns but there is a path of sorts to follow right next to wall. Descended to SW to join up again with Roman road and return to chapel(mistake, hard going should have returned way I came up).Rob5012/07/2017
From Bryn-pig. Descended north-west over rough ground to a track, following it north to the road. Took this SW, then on byway south along ridge, leaving it to follow a high wall south, steeply up at first. Left it to climb to the summit. To descend, returned north, following branch track and RoW down to the lane. Followed this south to the Afon Gain, then permissive path back to Pont dol y mynach. Solo.marktrengove17/04/2017
