Approach from Bwlch-y-gle Dam CP. Used zig-zag grassy track for much of ascent. 10337 is prime!

A great hill with super clear bright views and a good crowd for Myrddyn Phillips' 1000th Welsh P30. In addition, my 250th Marilyn. Will be remembered, without a doubt, as one of the best days of the year. Trig is still doing well too.

Came up from the reservoir car park to the West along the track. A lovely hill on a warm, still, Spring day. Last hill of the day and I think I deserve a coffee and cake now in Rhayader.

Second visit as first time it was misty and no views. Well worth it for the views over Llyn Clwyedog. Pillar still in good condition. Metal Plug

Parked at the dam. Absolute quagmire where the path starts climbing at the edge of the access land. Heavy rain on way up, sunny at the top. Good views all round. Plug intact.

Walked up from car park along a wide green track and a short detour to the top. A misty day spoilt what would have been good views over the lake.

vgc, metal cap, deep letters. Grass & rock summit, shapely hill, fine view, simple climb from car park to WSW. Highest point is c. 0.4m above FB level (481.8+0.4 = 482.2).

Another misty welsh trig, but imagine view over reservoir would be great. Good condition, metal plug. Same approach as previous log.

Quick up and down of this "marilyn". Good path along the track shown on the map final pull over tussocky heather and gorse. Trig intact but with very little of the original paint left.
