What a name! No feature on ridge of brash. Small saplings planted. Good time to be here. From track to east over brash, short distance having followed tracks from carpark to south west . Breezy sun. Onto hump/ trig- Banc y Garn.Denise 26/02/2024
Across the brash and stumps from forest track to SE. Levelish summit ridge of brash. Bilberry and bramble area with twisted remains of pines at high point. Good views.RichardM26/02/2024
From the east. Forest now felled. Brash all over but easy enough to climb to the few trees left on the summit.Moorponder24/06/2022

Used car park then walked on good tracks , from forest road on E side of the hill there is a small path up to the top, though passes a bit south of the actual summit.Adrian14/10/2019
A very odd little top characterised by dead, moss-covered trees, and collapsed foliage. It is reminiscent of one of those apocalypse films whereby you could almost be the last person alive. Quite eerie.thenomad21/12/2017
