Long overdue revisit.What this hill lacks in height is more than compensated for by walking its fabulous ridge & the stunning views. Low cloud today but on a clear day worth a 10/10 score in my book. Managed to slip on my *rse, covered in mud at the top! Not too cold up here thankfully. Descended the very steep north face, through the landslip then skirted the west side through woodland back to car. Fantastic

Mrs Dusty's birthday, so what could be better than a pillar, a view and a bright crisp morning. This Hill has attitude!

I come up here quite often but it's a while since I logged it properly so I thought I'd log again when I come up in the dark. Trig still in good condition and it's quite a clear night so the views to Abergavenny all lit up are good, further afield I can see Monmouth, Hereford, Cwmbran and everywhere inbetween - great!

Really outstanding views in all directions. Most certainly a hill worthy of many repeated visits.

Bagged on my way down to Cardiff. Ascended from the south via the forest, a steep climb at first. Also found the geocache. A great location.

Although quite misty, the views from the trig point location (and along the ridge) were exceptional. A slightly unusual design, with a National Trust plate above the flush bracket.

Not an overly high peak, but worthy of a 6 due to its prominence in the surrounding countryside giving very good views over this part of South Wales. The pillar, in good condition, is what I term a National Trust special, made from local stones and sporting a large NT sign - so much more pleasing than the drab concrete they are usually made of.

excellent clear morning great views from summit all around

Trig was bagged by one of my rambling friends during a weekend break with our rambling group, based in Abergavenny. Trig in good condition and views were excellent

Great views from the trig, fantastic area, trig point in good condition, few names scratching into the name plate but generally good.

Good walk up along the ridge, views across the black mountains

Short hard walk lovely views around the peaks of the area

It seems ages since I have been up on a hill, so this was wonderful. An early mothering Sunday present - Mum and I parked on the road to the south and walked up the very clear well maintained path. Once on the wonderful ridge it was fantastically windy and we had great views all round into the darkening skies and clouds. 486m Me, Mum.
A windy Trig With the camera mini-tripod wedged between the rocks to prevent it falling in the wind, this was the best pictures I could get!

Great ridge walk but plenty of other routes to summit. Nice, built up trig, great views.Used to be able to see this hill from my bedroom window. Had to wait 20 minutes for a space in the lay-by though,only downside.

Made out of local stone with a National Trust plaque. Lovely views. Tarmac plug pushed through.

A nice stone pillar on a nice hill. Approached from the south and like RW, did the cahe straight after the trig. Good to see the RW getting back into caching!
25th Sep 2006 14:53 by Rhayader_wanderer
Good clear day for finally getting round to a visit here. Parked in the free layby to the S and then followed the path up to the top. even had the time to visit the cache close by
19th Aug 2006 10:50 by sniffadogz
Views would be even better on a clear day.
27th Jul 2006 14:08 by Theo D Lite
Great views with a little history thrown in. Those two stones mark the doorway of a former chapel.
2nd Jul 2006 14:15 by SidAndBob
It's was hot and hazy up here today, but well worth the effort. The views were great today, but I imagine they're breathtaking on a clear day. Reading Fasgadh's log has reminded me that we have Skirrid, the board game!

Fantastic spot. Second Marilyn of day (after Sugar Loaf.) Great sunny views. Got buzzed at the summit by a yellow biplane.

stonebuilt, no cap or plug. By starlight, from the N - the stile was the only part of the path I found. Nose-bruiser of a slope.

Large local stone pillar with an NT plaque. One of the three peaks of South Wales.
20th Jan 1996 13:00 by fasgadh
Very much a local landmark, along with the Whimble on the Radnor Forest, this was the most exciting peak on the skyline when I was a child. Had a lot to do with getting me into the old hillbashing. Unfortunately it was many years until I got up the Holy Mountain. Its a big version of Glastonbury Tor and like the Tor is a place rich in folklore and has suffered earthquake damage, a big landslip in this case. The hill is separated from the parent hill of the Black Mountains by one of Britains most active faults, one that runs to Glastonbury! Who needs ley lines, real life is thrilling enough. The hill has even given its name to a board game. A muddy walk, beaten to the top by the National Trust.. Then on up to Hereford for the footy.
