|Logged Descriptions (logged by 23 users)||By||Date of Ascent|
|Over gate turned right and found track quite quickly. On descent went to the eastern edge of wood where the deciduous trees made for a lot easier going.||David Evans||18/11/2019|
|Parked as others. The first few mts are the worst. Managed to avoid most of the brambles and found in a few places a few mts of track not overgrown. Additional hazard is badger holes in the undergrowth near the top.||Campbell Singer||24/10/2019|
|As others, parked by gate at SJ 24930 35420 - After donning protective waterproofs & gloves, over gate, immediately right for a few metres & then up very overgrown track to the unmarked summit mound. Eye protection would have been useful, especially on lower section where interlocking branches from trees either side of the track create a formidable barrier. (S)||gerrybowes||07/02/2019|
|Parked at gate to S where some trimming has been done. Completely missed track N after initial thrash and went N close to W edge of wood. Return much easier along overgrown track until 100m from start.||Aye Jimmy||01/04/2018|
|After reading previous logs suitably prepared with gaiters and poles. Comments quite correct the first part is the most overgrown(brambles and gorse) and after this it is clearer. Knowing this gives you the incentive to get past. Doesn't seem as bad on the return leg.||Rob50||04/02/2018|
|You start by hammering through thickest lechrydau horse. Dim arafwch! Sandy Anthill was there to guide us - or divide us? Summit meaningless. Won't be doing g it again. With an aggravated nwormgage.||tumpawumpa||13/08/2017|
|With close ally tumpawumpa for guidance, and a leki stick for weaponry against mutant gorse, I thrashed northwards to a stinker of a rump. Why oh why oh why?||nwormgage||13/08/2017|

|Fearsome battle through gorse & other spikey stuff.||ngthack||12/03/2017|
|Obvious pull in. A badly overgrown track. Lots of heather lots of big bad brambles and gorse bushes as tall as me. Heartily recommend gaiters, gloves, secateurs..
The first 40 yards or so are the worse.
Summit is a bit away from the track. All heather and swear words.||stig_nest||17/04/2016|
|Parked in lay-by on B4579 at SJ 24606 35311 - room for 2 cars. Took road south-east for 100m, then lane north-east up to the start of the forest track described by others beyond a gate. There are two tracks which converge higher up - both overgrown and horrible! We took the right-hand one going up which was an unpleasant mixture of gorse and prickly fir branches overgrowing the track. This eventually emerged at the track junction onto a wide easy track by a badger set. Summit is a small brambly knoll 5m west of the track. To descend we took the other (right-hand) track at the junction. This proved even worse, with brambles and stinging nettles added to the mix! Avoided some of the unpleasantness by stuggling through the woods close to the field edge. Then back down to the lay-by. Walk continued to Y Graig Wen. Real name of hill is Grugfryn. With MP on an evening walk/survey.||Man of Kernow1||17/07/2015|
|Climbed while staying at the nearby Quinta centre with Cambridge Christian Union. A good climb, with some rough forest to finish - grateful for the track to the top!||Mark Jackson||12/01/2012|
