This one is a bit of a challenge as well. The summit is clear but getting there - well be prepared to be scratched and scraped.Ianto&Sue12/05/2019

From Rhiwaedog back to main track towards Is Afon. Through forest at its narrowest point which was easy enough. Followed forest edge over rough grass. Its an interesting hill, I couldnt make my mind up whether the several hollows were from mining..i thought not. So sinkholes? Surely not. Bomb craters? Whatever, a fine wee hill.stig_nest18/06/2016
Parked by the bridge at 913303 where the road becomes a track, quite a bit of space here. Several areas of the forest to the south west of the summit have recently been harvested making the ground a little uneven.JohnStoneham05/05/2013
