  GW/HMW-072 - Penglais

This summit has a very large AZ that extends SE on to the B4572. The actual summit is on farmland owned by the university. There is plenty of room on and around the summit for HF antennas and VHF take-off is reasonable. However, the Cambrian Mountains affect normal propagation eastwards but VHF contacts may be made along the coastal strip, all the way from Pembrokshire to the Lleyn. There is a TP 360m NW from the summit.

Report 1
 SN 6022 8321 - Room for about 4 cars.
 From the parking spot on the B4572 ascend the steps on the right (with your back to the road) and follow the path upwards. Soon you come to a simple bench. At this point leave the main path on a more feint path that goes behind the bench, up the hill. Quite quickly you will come to a major path that runs parallel to the edge of the woodland. Turn right and continue to where another path heads off to the left. This is the main footpath up the hill. Continue along this footpath, out of the woodland and across two fields. Turn right on a footpath at the end of the second fields and take the path up to the summit.
