Route almost the same as Glaslyn, but I parked at the high point of the road between the two cattle grids in a small layby. Plenty of tussocky, boggy ground to cover to get to the trig with a distant glimpse of the Llyn Brianne dam at the halfway point. Fine view from the trig, including Black Mountain. This view will be lost soon as there is new forestry planting. Pillar in vgc with cap in place.

Parked at roadside at SN7758244319 and walked 200m SW along road to follow FP N across hillside. Then FP and forest roads NE to TP. Much of the forested area on approach has been felled. TP is on a large mound tucked in close to remaining forestry to NE and E of it - in good condition with fine views S to the Black Mountain. Followed forest roads SE of approach to return to start.

Looking S towards Black Mountain

Parked due N at the high point near cattle grid. Cross open field then hug wood for half a mile to avoid gulies. Once you reach high ground take direct route SW following intermittent Quad tracks. Pillar in clearing at edge of woodland. Nice location lovely Feb sunshine for company.

On the edge of the forest. Brass plug with no lettering - quite rare!
