Approach from near MTB centre to S (got permission to park). Nice hill - Downhill MTB track(s) from near summit.

Parked by the phone box at Llangadwaladr. Up the bridleway and then through pasture fields to the access land. It's then a steep pull to the summit. Slightly disappointing view given the hills elevation.

Visiting this trig today leaves me now with just two pillars left to have completed the whole of North Wales. All going well I'll get these done next week. Exciting times :)

That's a steep b'way diversion. I wouldn't fancy it on a horse. Lovely day, lovely walk up, over and around the hill. The church is grand, too.

Parked near the phone box and then headed up to Fron, missing the bridleway entrant. Read the sign at Fron about no right of way so backtracjed and contoured arounf to pick up bridleway, Quite a bit of new fencing added to hillside so not quite as esy as previous visitors have said. Must write to Hugh Grant to tell him that.

Another sharp climb after Mynydd Mawr. Followed redirected By way thet used to go through "Fron", now it starts from near spot 266. Parked at Llangadwaladr then back up road. Follow diversion until you reach old route, then straight up fenceline to summit.Good location. Pillar carries plaque and crest.

Had no difficulty with access [there is a stile just to the N] - only with the climb! The pillar is intact with the original plug - slightly indented letters. No paint. The concrete base can be seen but is flush with the grass and there are a lot of loose stones from the walls scattered around it. Like the previous pillar visited, this one has a sculpted crest above the FB, now covered in lichen [this one obviously isn't adopted]. Again, lovely views all round. Nice spot.

Really stiff climb on a hot day. Hang-gliding hill, apparently, but all I saw was flies and hornets that bit like adders. Good condition, original plug, raised emblem on one side. No paths on maps, but area walked, with many stiles. Public

I believe there may be some problem with access - especially at Fron - so I parked by church in Llangadwaladr and went straight up. Crossed about 5 fields before arriving just East of top.

Regimental crest cast into side of pillar. Apparently this hill was the location for the Hugh Grant Film 'The Englishman who went up a hill and came down a mountain'. Footpaths have been changed in this area recently because of the film with the old path up being shut and a new permissive path created. Plug with heavily indented lettering.

Strange pillar with a crest as a releif. Good viewpoint. Used the bridleway from Fron, and firmly told the idiot blocking it where to go. Faced him down, but smaller folk may have difficulty. Recent reports have it that the prat has now got an aggressive dog. Gyrn Moelfre featured in a film about Garth Hill, Cardiff. "The Englishman who went up a hill and came down a mountain"
