Same route as other from Ponderosa. The cloud was lowering all the time as we walked up towards the trig but we managed to get there just in time before the hill was lost to the cloud.

I know it is a good view up here - it's just at last the rain arrives so little view, just the strange mix of bleak moor and lush buttercups. Get the Marilyn top 3 metres higher on the way back

Watkins remnants What with Moel Famau across the range a set of hills not good at retaining their monuments
That looks like a bit of a lean to me

great views though hazy today. from bikers mecca Ponderosa a very good track leads almost all the way.. its a bit peaty from the 2nd mast but a way can be found without getting trenchfoot. trig is in very good condution...which is more than can be said for Sir Watkins tower... theres some sandstone blocks which give a clue of its former glory..but alas now just a pile of rubble.

Walked up the track from the Ponderosa Cafe. Easy going until the second transmitter is reached then it's a bit boggy.

Three quarters of a mile from Offa's Dyke path. Take the path on the forest side of the fence - not the one on the moor side - its is hard work.

Although it was a cloudy day I think the views are fantastic from here and I'm tempted to say it's better than Moel Fammau. Looks like I'm the only one who thinks this by the look at other scores.
