Very pleasant 3 Tump circular walk combining this with Moelfre.Alex C26/07/2019
I went steeply straight up from the gate on the yellow road at SO 00324 84084. This was dreadful, I nearly got stuck in the brambles and gorse. It took 20 minutes to go 130m with 40m height gain to get to the sheep pasture. Once reached, the top gave fine views in the evening light.Alan Moore10/10/2018
Hp on the fence line with metal post ( formerly aerial?). Good views. Easy terrain- sheep pasture- after Foel. Lots of ripe blackberries. from South.Denise 30/08/2018
From the S. Initially on track then over sheep pasture to summit. High point on fence line at old aerial pole.RichardM30/08/2018

Going through the gate 100m east is the key, as Des says, is the key to this one.clivevilla08/02/2015
As destaylor.Chris Peart11/07/2014
Parked at lane junction at SO 00389 84033 - plenty of parking. Took gated lane round west flank of hill, then very steeply up to barbed wire fence. Once over this, up through undergrowth, over another barbed fence south and so to summit. Returned down south side of hill to RoW and lane - much easier, quicker and the recommended route. With MP on a stormy day with sodden fields.marktrengove09/02/2014
As Des second HuMP today with Phil Cooper.Dugswell216/11/2012
