    I climbed this mountain with Richard from his farm at the foot of the mountain. Parts of the ascent were remarkably steep, but the spectacular views from the top are well worth it on a clear day.

    Also recommended are night time ascents where, on a cold, frosty evening, the steelworks at Port Talbot glow like some evil volcano from Lord of the Rings.

    It's slightly odd being on a summit surrounded by trees, however the archaeology up there transport the visitor's mind back to another time in history.
