I too liked this summit with its cairn and orienteering post present. I am also glad that Pete mentions it is a four to five hour walk. Some of my friends make me think I walk too slow.Father Ted06/08/2007
Decent summit, small cairn on distinctive high point, quite good tracks to follow then cut down to the river on an open spur to return to the car. Good 4-5 hour circuitRhayader_wander02/01/2007
