4th hill of 9 on a 20km circuit from Llanarmon yn-lal to Gwernymynydd. After Moel Gyw I descended to the Offas dyke path and followed it to the road and then continued on the path until it starts to pass through some trees. i climbed up through the edge and inside the woodland taking advantage of a fallen tree compressing th bw fence. Exiting the woodland taking in the lower summut first and then over the fence (electrified but possibly not working) to the true summit. Descent back through the wood and then over fence where there should have been a stile continuing on road heading for Pen Llanerch...Dazingdale27/01/2024

From cp at Bwlch Penbarras (free at this time of year) straight uphill from rear of car park. Steep and slippery in places but some very fine steps aswell. Down the far side and along ODP to foot of Moel Eithinen. Summit reached across sheep pastures. Searched summit and nearby alterative but no sign of RHW`s cairn. No views as awful weather and low cloud.mart079720/02/2016
From Clwyd Gate. Having visited Foel Fenlli it seemed obvious to pop up here and the terminus of the ridge the gyrn. So i did. Easy enough. No sign of the OS block which should be up here though.stig_nest04/11/2015
