Up from Maerdy, though finding the start of the forest track was somewhat tricky. After that it was straightforward apart from the last little stretch accessing the raised ground near the trig. Good to see that the trig was spared when the nearby embankment was constructed.Father Ted02/04/2019
A bit wary of parking my car in Maerdy, then saw police cars slowly patrolling. Nice summit ridge, feels like remote area once the towns are out of sight.Adrian14/12/2018
Parked at the school; a little tricky in places, and steep. Top is at the trig pillar, with a close-by raised bank surrounding a small quarry being higher, but man-made.jonglew17/01/2017
Part of a circular loop from Tonpentre train station.liljonb23/04/2016
Walked up through former Maerdy colliery following well defined track. Trig point is natural top but top of bank surrounding small quarry workings is now higher.Ramblingpaul08/12/2015
