Parked in T- Y- Pystill at the end of the road in the B&B car park. Bit pricey. Nice walk upto Llyn Lluncaws and on up to the summit. Excellent 360 views with good visibility. Superb wind shelter to enjoy lunch. Headed off to Glan Hafon on a route that would likely have been challenging had we not had the serious dry spell.

Had visited these hills in 2003 whilst completing a round of the Welsh Hewitts,so I was looking forward to my day. Walked in from the waterfall at Pistyll Rhaeadr via Llyn Lluncaws,continued past pillar to take in Cadair Bronwen, then retraced steps to Moel Sych and the permissive path back to the falls. Weather superb,clear blue skies and warm (for November!)sun,with the tops of Snowdonia poking through the valley cloud. Great walking with snow drfts still lingering.Pillar is quite damaged on the top but otherwise in good condition.

Hardened plastic/resin plug? Public. Access Land. Berwyn Mntns. Walking route from Llandrillo along Berwyn St - becomes steep track, then [in places, waterlogged] footpath up to Cadair Bronwen col. Exhilarating walk along high ridge, handrailing fence on right. Trig visible from far off on clear day. A real mountain trig. Good, quick descent back to footpath down Foel Fawr.

A fine summit on a fine ridge over 800 metres AOD. The trig pillar is not the ridges highest point at 827 metres. The highest point is the rocky ridge just south at 830 metres AOD. Did this trig on a trek from the waterfall up on to Cader Berwyn then return to the top of the waterfall via Moel Sych and the complete ridge.

A glorious end to the day up here! The plug has a plastic replacement and the top is breaking up quite a lot. No paint. Sightholes open. By this time most people had gone home and so it was pleasantly quiet and getting cooler. Wonderful views but tending to cloud over a bit. Great spot!

Like Picadilly Circus up here today my normally deserted parking point had 5 cars in it by the time I started and there were no fewer that 10 groups of 2 or more people en route. No photo today but the breaking up of the top is more pronounced that my visit last year. Nutall top 7 of 12 for the day. Good views as and when cloud allowed them

Agree with the RW that its condition now needs downgrading. Even on a smashing day like today these hills were deserted. I was impressed with the peaks on the actual ridge but those on the rest of the horseshoe walk I did were little more than grassy tussocks!

A crisp winter day actually my 6th top of the day with a further 5 following it but the only trig on the upland Berwyn Circuit. I am suggesting a downgrade for this trig condition. The top is now breaking away in the same way as that on Plynlymon has but not as badly. There is also pitmarking over the whole of the trig worst on the north face. Photo to follow to back up reassignment
