ODP#17: beautiful sunny evening, so left the Old Man to carry onto the Clwyd Gate Inn (which turned out to be closed and up for sale so no beer for him!). Quick and easy diversion up from the ODP to find a pillar with stunning views, including the other Clwydian hills, the coast and Snowdonia. All s/holes and centre open, but rest of pillar in vgc.

3rd of 4 today. Parked in pub car park to the NW on the A494 and followed the road opposite down towards some farm buildings, then the ROW up to the west of the hill, where you pick up a path to the summit. Pretty steep in places, but the views from the top are worth it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejdCTe3QNAw&t=69s

Appraoched on Offa's Dyke from the west. I was using a pretty old map without the path marked and I cut off the path too soon and yomped up through the knee deep steep heather only to realise at the top that there was a good track leading up from Offa's Dyke.
