Parked at in the gravel pile layby. Up the track that starts at the chapel, pausing en route to let the shepherd round his flock up with a little help from his dogs.. Wide view from the trig. Unsurprisingly for such a popular spot, the cap has long gone.

didnt see a lot for the early morning mist. but its a place of some atmosphere. after the chapel a decent path leads up the hill about a third of the way. when it begins to peter out go right and try to stay out of the long grass!

Tried parking at chapel but it seemed tight to parked up on the road between farm and chapel near gravel pile. Then left of cottage near chapel and track on west side of Gogyrnant gorge to top. Great walk today with a couple of friends.

Parked at chapel after speaking with owner of Ty Capel. Pleasant walk up sheep track, then out onto heather-clad hillside to summit. Buzzard perched on trig as we approached, didn't want to leave, seemed to resent our intrusion! Pillar in reasonable condition but with slight damage to top surface screed; cap missing, no plug; 3 sight holes open, front closed. Hill summit approx 18m S on cairn/burial mound. Extensive 360deg views.

Parked at forestry car park approx 1.5 miles NE of Cilycwm. Followed tracks N out of forest towards Cwm-saethe, and joined (non-existent) track up onto Mynydd Mallaen and to the standing stone. Then headed directly to the TP, negotiating boggy ground in the last half-mile. Absolutely beautiful day for late November - walked in T-shirt and shorts. At TP, glorious views to all points. Returned via TP Mallaen Mountain.

Very steep direct ascent from the road, hard work in the July heat! Large piles of stones from couple of old hill-forts(?) near the trig. Cap missing but allen screws remain.

Highest point of Mynydd Mallaen. Very large cairn nearby. I used to visit this area for holidays when a young child.

The summit burial cairn and trig, Mynydd Mallaen.
