Route as CW - rough going once off track.Chris Peart08/10/2012
Started near Cadgwan at SH760274 up to right and then left. The secret is a path that starts at SH7563626970 marked by a piece of quartz. However it's a plantation and this info will get dated. Not best view in world, but will do until another one comes aMartin R01/09/2011
Parked at 743262 - loads of room - and followed wide forest track to summit area. There is a gate into the access land about 200m after the information boards at 752264 and a faint path to the col and summit. No feature.chriswatson12/05/2011
As AB. Last 150m heather and long grass.destaylor18/03/2011
