|A hill I certainly will not be returning to after a torrential downpour vented its wrath full on to me en-route.
Parking available at a small pull-in on the road running north west a few metres north of Framlington Gate. Through a forest gate and a good path through the trees until it turns to run south. At the point there is a firebreak to the right, however, looking at it, it appears to be too badly overgrown by trees to be of use. Persevere and walk up to it. The first 30m is a scramble but it then becomes clearer and provides access to the final fence. Climb this and it becomes very rough walking west then south to the summit. By now it was torrenting down and, I really was losing the will to live by the time the trig came in sight .... only now to have rain now full on in my face as I made my way back. 3.5km return, 50 minutes, 216m ascent. Roll on death ...... theres too many hills left to do.||moorsman||02/08/2017|
|From layby on A697 at Framlington Gate as Crib Goch, followed track for about 500m to start of gated forest track on left (found dog-walkers parked here when I came back). Forest track till about 100m past its crest where it swings S, then gap in trees to N (by 2nd little beck) to top of forest. W along fence line to corner, then fence S to trig, piles of stones and shelter. Summit stands well clear of forest.||Aye Jimmy||30/04/2016|
|From layby at 118036 at Framlington Gate. RoW to 114044. Then followed forest edge W then S to summit. Tussocky grass and heather made worse by 6-12ins. of snow, but superb views from top. Cannot understand RHW's comment re lack of TP. It stands out a mile - big, concrete and ugly - lots of pics on Geograph||Crib Goch||16/01/2016|
