Walked up from the car park on the south east of the Sugar Loaf, along a sunken road and through some fields. Glorious day with amazing views but pretty windy though. Busy at the top. The ground has been worn away over the years leaving the trig on a platform of rocks.

Lovely walk up today, nice and cold with a tiny bit of snow on the North side. VERY busy though, plenty of 'tourists' - skirts and trainers were spotted several times. Full 360 degree views, Pen Y Fan in the distance I believe also. Trig adopted by Longtown Mountain Rescue, thanks guys for the good work!

I'd been walking in the Black Mountains with some friends over the weekend and we decided on The Sugarloaf as a final summit before heading home. A bit crowded up here this morning on a lovely September day. I was last up here more years ago than I care to remember.

Absolutely, by far, without a doubt, the best Trig I have been to so far out of the 62 I have done to date. The sky was clear blue and without a cloud to be seen anywhere. The views were amazing. Elevation 596 meters, (although my GPS read 603 meters). Also did as YOSM 287 on Geocaching.com

Ascended from the Fro car park and lunched just below the summit. Party then carried on to Llangenny whilst I returned to fetch car. Plenty of walkers around despite the freezing temperatures and murky conditions. Battening down the hatches for the snow from Siberia due this week!!

vgc, white, asphalt plug; NT plaque and another noting its adoption (by M.R.Team). Attractive, distinctive and busy hill, the visitor numbers swelled by a few mountain runners (Llanbedr-Blaenavon Race, the oldest in Wales, as the marshall told me, before he raced off to get a number of a runner who had got past him while I was distracting him!)

Striking hill that is recogizable from just about anywhere that it can be seen in this part of Wales due to it's distinctive shape. Strangely I don't remember much about the walk, it wasn't very memorable although I have a vague memory that the views were good, as would be expected. Retro-bagging this hill in 2012.

Fantastic view all round. Unfortunately it was pretty greyish weather, but ultimately better than trapseing around the streets of Amsterdam as I had been doing that very morning - which probably accounts for my high rating! Pretty deserted late afternoon at the end of winter time except for some friendly locals walking their Jack Russell. The trig point has obviously been adopted by the National Trust.

A great little summit entailing a fair walk in from most directions (and there seem to be a multitude of routes up here). I managed to get my bike pretty close coming up from the east. It was quiet until I met the hordes on the top. Poor visibility unfortunately. Back down through woods to south, which were extraordinarily gnarled, twisted and quite spooky, even in daylight.

I have been up to this Trig Point on many occasion - My latest visit was with Dave, Simon, Ben, Graham and Craig on a 'lads weekend'. As we climbed up Sugar Loaf we had a laugh as we watched a farmer in his Land Rover try and catch his runaway horse around the bottom of the slopes. I have previously been up Sugar Loaf (a.k.a "Sandra’s Nipple") in my early expedition days in the Scouts - wearing Doc Martins!
