Field gates and fence lines from lane to SW. Gently domed sheep pasture summit.RichardM10/02/2019
From Rhydfaes- layby here: up the unmetalled road, straightforward to pasture summit- even though we left the road too early and had an extra fence to traverse- all easily managed. Nice, clear views after foul morning- a 1225 hrs start. With brother, Pete.pwheeler01/05/2017
Continuation of walk from Coed Mawr. Retraced my steps north to rejoin the Severn Way, following it WSW to join the lane near Gwastadcoed. Continued up to a house at Pt.251m, then muddy bridleway north, climbing a gate to ascend to the summit. Then rejoined the bridleway, taking it down to Hornby. Then quiet country lanes east back to Llandinam. Solo Nordic walk in fine but cold weather.Man of Kernow102/01/2017
