Drive north of LLithfaen along narrow lane until you reach Small Car park. Take the stone track that runs all the way to the col between the two Yr Eifls. Take track towards summit which stops before you reach the top and a short not so easy scramble follows. The summit is marked by two cairns and has some wonderful views Linkback:
