From Corwen Leisure Centre car park at SJ 08221 44194. Took the lane up past Tan y Gaer, then a steep path up to the large cairn on the hill-fort ramparts. Then descended via a gate to a boggy col and path up to summit. On return, took grassy track around the south flank of the fort, and then back down the lane. With MP and AW. NOTE: car park gates may be locked when leisure centre closing.Man of Kernow127/01/2024
