6/9 on a 17 mile round from Clun Mill hostel in very good spring weather - sunny with a chill in the air. From Bryn on longest stretch of road walking of the day.

From SW. One of the wasiest of the day. Were treated to a low pass by a heli which surely indulged us by doing a circle over the valley coming past a second time even closer. Summit has a water tank or similar embedded in it. The vent is a cracking microphone. 12th of the day with Laura.w.stig_nest06/05/2016
With stig_nest. Oddly the only things I remember are the helicopter and the microphone :)Laura.W06/05/2016
Parking on the verge to the SW. Pass through the bridle gate at head straight upwards. The climb can be made easier by carrying on along the path after the gate until it reaches the first fence. From here the ascent is less steep.moorsman20/04/2016
