Was disappointed the castle was shut because of the covid 19 restrictions, would have climbed the wall but to many folk about. Bagged the nearby flush bracket and rivet benchmark as a consolation.

Quick stopoff in Criccieth to log the bolt and claim the Tump, which happened to be my final hill on the Lleyn Peninsula.

2" bolt. On Engine Tower not main tower. Cost 3.50 to enter in main season. Very windy today. Bonus TUMP included.

2" bolt on wall of Engine Room, a foot outside handrail, easy access once paid 3.50 fee. Nov-Mar is free but Mon-Thu only, otherwise open except Xmas hol. Times variable but 11-4 safe bet. A p30 metre summit main reason for visit but pleased to find bolt is easy
