|Parked by church/old phone box in Llangadwaladr. Took lane NE until near a house then up the hill. Several knolls on summit area, the one furthest W is highest.||Aye Jimmy||26/05/2018|
|1/4 solo immeasurably beautiful and windy autumn walk, figure of 8 from tregeiriog. No cows today but piles of hares! Stopped using my poles for a bit out of fear of stabbing them. Some blokes had 2 land rovers stuck on the trail below. Saw a peregrine also. Few candidates for high point. Large rocky outcrop to east was immense and windy.||tumpawumpa||22/10/2017|

|From SJ160291 (http://streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?X=316095&Y=329161&A=Y&Z=115) - first Cefn Pantglas then Hen Graig. Mist didn't lift so needed careful nav with out of date map.||summitsup||21/01/2017|
|Attempted along with Craig Ysgwennant. Disappointingly didn't reach the summit, due to it being protected and covered by several fields of cows. Wasn't going to risk it on my own, will try again.||tumpawumpa||10/10/2016|
|From Llangadwaladr. Made a nice loop of it via the western contouring path. Such a crying shame that what was once one of the finest technical mountain bike routes has now been smoothed to the point you could drive a car up it. There used to be great big steps in the bedrock and water running down it.
If you do come up here make sure you visit the western top. Whilst a tad lower its a fine spot. Rocky to the point of offering some scrambling. The main summit and the rocks just s.e. of offer the best views of the gyrn from anywhere. A great little hill.||stig_nest||26/04/2016|
