From the south following the track along more or less level until a gate beyond the wall and up the pasture. The wall looks quite difficult to scale so do not try to cut the corner off by leaving the track too soon.clivevilla05/03/2019
Obvious but unmarked HP in domed grassy pasture with superb valley views on gorgeous day. Parking to south at road col (SO 079569).Denise 04/01/2019

On way to main summit.jimbloomer30/11/2014
A direct route from Blaenkerry is a tough proposition at this time of year that I won't be repeating due to the bracken. Approaching from the south using the bridleway is the best option.JohnStoneham06/09/2014
Bagged this grassy TuMP on the way back from Gilwern Hill. It is just a short walk from the track.Dugswell222/08/2014
