Thrashed up through heather, bramble and gorse from road, diverting briefly onto pasture. Descended partly on quarry road. Trig treated as HP though the nearby embankment of the quarry road is higher.Denise 21/09/2016
The convenient wedge of Access Land between the A458 and the summit is a trap! The field boundary to the S or quarry road are much better options. Access Land is deep bramble / gorse and bracken, perhaps in winter it may be OKRichardM21/09/2016
On circular from Foel Dyrch you can see the route to take I.E. the old quarry road to SW of working quarry entrance through thick trash past what may be an old explosives lock up to TP near new quarry roadunderhill06/08/2015
Parked in roadside layby on A478 near OS 258m spot height. Awkward bramble bank to negotiate initially and it didn't get much better until scrambling over spoil onto a quarry 'road' at SN 16587 28583. Easy walk to hill top from there. Trig point at summit is 10m outside quarry boundary. There is now a nearby spoil heap several metres higher than hill summit.jonglew31/08/2014
