Picture: Heading for the summit
When on A470 exit at Taffs Well and cross the river to get to the road south of the hill. Parking is very limited here. I was warned, and got here early as it is a popular spot. There is one spot in the trees to the south east and walk the rest of the way.

No brooks on this hill

A very steep climb from the road to the south below, but wonderful views of Taff's Well and beyond. Many tracks crisscross this hill. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/B2299/comment/21079/
