A challenging location indeed. Visited towards the end of a long days walk in the area the last half of which seemed to have few footpaths.

14 mile leg stretch from Glyntawe for this and the Cribarth pillar - some hills also. Ground very wet and streams running high meant wet feet for the day. Pillar seems in good condition other than minor chipping to some top edges. Central cap missing, no plug; all sight hole open. Cloud lifting, sun penetrating, nice panoramic views.

Did as part of a 3-trig 20 mile circuit also taking in Trecastle and Careg Yr Ogof. Approached directly on the bridleway from Careg Yr Ogof but the ford was impassable so had to follow the river NE for a mile to the other ford and approached via Carreg Lem instead. Excellent limestone environs and view.

Would have got a better score in good weather but the wind was howling and the rain pouring. The 5th day on the trot!

Parked car at forest gateway at SN 772 118 and walked through forest on tracks to exit at centre of N side. First mile or so of open country was very boggy. After that, not too bad, but no marked paths. Great walk. Remote TP.

Walked in from the south. Fords and footpaths do not exist. Waded through stream up to my knees. Bogs to circumnavigate. Having said all that it was a pleasant walk.

A great day out with a Duke of Edinburgh's Award group. They loved it.

Second of two T/Ps logged today. Hiked in from the west via TP0721. A trek of just over 5 miles and 3.3/4 hours (did two caches on the way). The weather was overcast and a bit misty so the views not as good as they might otherwise have been. The centre plug is missing so I'll log this as 'slightly damaged'. Apart from that, it's in remarkably good condition.

This must be one of the remotest trigs in South Wales. We parked at the end of the little yellow road that goes past Pen-sarn Farm. Just room for one car. A pleaant walk up to the trig which took about 1 hour 20 minutes. I don't think it sees many visitors. Good views north to the Carmarthen Fan. It must have had one visitor in the past as the plug is missing - otherwise all OK.
