Continuation of walk from Garn Wen. Descended north-east to a wide very boggy area, over a gate by a group of mature trees and then east (one barbed wire fence to tackle) to the fine summit. To descend, headed steeply down east by forest edge, then bracken thrash to a byway, which I took north past Dinas Mill back to the church car park. Solo.Man of Kernow105/11/2016
