Very distinctive profile and satisfying hill; unfortunately today raining and almost dark. Summit cairn, in sheep pasture with rock outcrops and short grass; we slithered down, having avoided the quarry on ascent. Rheidol valley is spectacular.Denise 07/10/2020
Almost dark as we reach the steep sided summit with small cairn. Last of a 10 Tump, 19.5mile walk from Woodlands campsite. A great little hill to end the day on.RichardM07/10/2020
From wide gateway to small quarry at 72697 77593. Up drive past quarry down a pasture before steeply up to summit. The final climb to the summit is quite steep and this is a good hill.clivevilla07/03/2018
