From Coed Cae Aberaman. Some good tracks and some tracks more fit for submariners. Odd summit decoration made out of old gas cylinders. Final approach to summit from the north.Campbell Singer30/08/2019
Circular walk from Llanwonno. Mainly good forest tracks/paths. Lots of felling/burning/new planting in area. Ddu Allt, Pen Craig Abercwmboi, Coed Cae Aberaman, Cefn Gwyngul & Tylorstown Tip.Arbie03/05/2019
From Coed Cae Aberamon, along forest tracks and trail bike tracks which confused navigation. Did not approach this one via the easiest route, would have been better to approach from track to NW. flag pole remain plus litter at top.PeterD22/04/2019
Walk from Fernhill following forest tracksRamblingpaul07/07/2017
From 04359752, where new solar farm is being built rendering parking tight for 1 car due to construction traffic requiring access. First of 3 x 400m hills on some muddy and some good tracks and some steep firebreaks to connect tracks; a moderately tough 8 miles. Base and lower section of a flag pole at summit - probably the army's warning flag as used to be a firing range.jonglew18/01/2017
Odd metal structure at summit.Dusty08/03/2016

Didn't realise I been here until I when through my records and checked my GPS readings.I remember I found it quite tough walk from Cwmaman the remains of the flag give a good indication of the summit Remember had a long walk around on that plateau looking for alternative summits.hodder21/11/2013
