|Up and down via the service (logging?)road; OS map now not accurate as regards forest blocks. Part of run from Ingram to Branton. Glorious summer late afternoon, though breezy and not hot. Did not see anyone. A few sheep at the summit.||jamesaskew||01/08/2017|
|BEWARE OF IRATE FARMER! [Not access land]
I walked this via the vehicle track from the S, then cut straight up the W flank to the summit. Not obvious until I was well up the hill was a large herd of young cattle which stampeded when the saw me, although I was never closer than 50m. Bagged the top and was almost down when the farmer came tearing up in his landrover. He was polite but definitely angry. He explained that the cattle had recently been separated from their mothers and were pretty frisky and easily spooked. In that mood they are uncontrollable and prone to plough through fences and escape. On a previous occasion he had to round cattle up from three miles away. I think this time there was no damage, but implications were obvious. Lesson learned!||Crib Goch||02/09/2016|
|Road from S leads to pasture W of summit. Easily then to rather spoilt summit area - trig, mast and compound, power line.||Aye Jimmy||30/04/2016|
