Walked to this fantastic mountain from Brecon in a 13+ mile walk that took in the near by Trig of Cefn Cantref, then onto Fan y Big, Cribyn and this fine summit, before heading back into Brecon. Great weather until I got back to Brecon in heavy rain, an awesome walk overall! You can follow a detailed walking route and write up of this walk by typing 'Fell Finder' into Google.

The men from the National Trust were cementing a metal plaque onto a newly constructed cairn and the builder's spaniel kept bringing him pieces of rock! Above is date of most recent of five visits, first on 04/06/1982. Pillar was intact then, standing on summit of Pen y Fan, and still there two years later though graffitied. On visit in 1993 it had gone over the edge or had been removed for archaeological dig. Visited while tracking the Taff for my book "Headwaters -Walking to British River Sources".

I can confirm that the trig is missing! When I got here there was no one else about with light cloud around the summits of Corn Du and Pen y fan fifteen minuets later it was totally clear. Came up from the car-park before the story arms weather was sunny and warm for the most part until you get on the the peaks where it was quite windy. First time I've been here and loved the whole thing. Every one should come here - returning from Crybin every body was!

Highest peak so has to be done, but would recommend Fan Frynych as a much more enjoyable walk. Views are really good on a clear day, but better off going in the evening when itís less crowded. The Trig is long gone, though there are some very poignant and moving tributes to fallen soldiers

Clear basal outline of what appears to be the remains of a stonebuilt trig. However, referring to old photos on this page, it was a standard concrete Hotine pillar, so sadly nothing tickable after all. Perfect summer morning: at the summit just after 6a.m. - as were 2 other parties! Nice cloud inversion - well worth the effort. Built 15/04/39, finally destr 1991 after many years of vandalism, fb 2483 (OS).

Apparently this trig was dismantled to allow an archaeological dig to take place.What sacrilege! Listed by Os as S2483.

Logging this retrospectively from 2010. So so sad that some mindless cretins destroyed this trig. I guess I must have visited this trig 4 or 5 times in total between the late 60s and early 90s

Just a post from the days when the pillar was there.. Last saw it in 1986.. No further visits until 1999, when it had gone.

Visited here on CCF routemarch. Terrible weather, wind and driving rain, so marked down.
