This was one of our local summits. The access to this summit is very good, with room for a few cars to park. Once you have passed through the gate there is a short walk before you turn right to head up to the summit. There is a large fallen tree that you need to head for. once you have found this the route it is well defined.

The summit is not marked by a trig point and can be busy with horse riding from a local riding school.
The VHF take off is good on this summit.

This summit has great views of the Valleys and Cardiff area.

This was the second summit of the day. There is only a few miles between  them and well worth the effort Access to this summit can be from two directions with limited parking both sides. Good views of the surrounding areas overlooking the A470. Takes 20 mins from car to summit.
Once again a busy summit in good weather but plenty of room to set up equipment. Good VHF take off .
