Very cold and windy. Walked up from road on footpath then followed fence line north to trig point. Good views but lots of low cloud.

On grassy area in midst of heather moor. Quite a lot of fading white paint. Asphalt plug replacement. Concrete base exposed at grass level. One sight hole open, others closed. Remains of derelict building close by and piles of bricks from said building stacked against pillar. Very windy today but good views all round.

Great views over the estuary and up to the Snowdon ranger. Came up the track from Llanberis and then the path through the heather to the top. A fine breakfast at Pete's Cafe beforehand helped!

Walked up from Waunfawr, before carrying on over Moel Eilio and Moel Cynghorion then back down on the Snowdon Ranger Path. A fresh day with plenty of wind but good visibility in all directions.

Walked up from Waunfawr following the road up to the remains of the Donen Lās forest. Then a quick walk through the gorse up to the trig. Then back down into Llanberis. Nice views from the trig today.

Asphalt plug. Public. Access Land. Good walk up from Llanberis by minor road & public footpath to Bwlch-y-groes. Trig on moorhead above disused quarry & tips. Next to ruins of Marconi's wireless station [bricks scattered about].

Parked on road where forestry commission have a track and large turning area. From there a pleasant climb across the heather which was in bloom. Ruins of brick building close to trig. Maybe once associated with mining?

AFAIK the ruins are part of Marconi's Longwave transmitting station build around the time of WW1

Plate Looks subject to over enthusiastic painting

Rarely do I wax lyrical about a trig and even rarer is a 9 or 10 on my listings, but those of you that read my musings will have noticed a distinct fondness for the small set of trigs that lie on the northern edge of Snowdonia. All have great views of the mountains but this takes the crown. Plenty of parking at the end of the road from Waufawr is a good start (ignore the pull ins the forestry lorries only just make it past). A steady walk on tracks then opens out to a wide view not only of all Ynys Mons but also the entire Snowdon and Glyder ranges With Moel Elio and Clogwyn highly visible and to cap it all a view down the lleyn and the Nantle Hills. On a fully clear day this is a photographers paradise. Rare are the trigs I seek to visit twice. Most are on a fell top but as a quick route from Llanberis when there is no time to get any higher this is a real gem. Then just when you think it cant get any better there is a great view of Caernarfon Castle as you drive back to the village
