Easy parking at the end of the forest track to the NE. Once out of the forest a path winds around and then it is easy to pick a route to the top. Picked up a lot of other people's recent litter - you don't need to be a PI to work out it was recent given the eat by date on the M&S melon slices packet.

Lovely warm autumn weather and exceptionally clear - Pumlumon, and right down the Dyfed coast to Preseli, Dinas Island and beyond. Cader Idris spectacular from this angle. Aran Fawddwy just peeping out towards the NE. Scramblers down below on the forest tracks but no-one up here. As has been said - a gem

what should be a spledid summit ruined by enduro/motorcross bikes.. ruts and scars all over these hills. not to mention rubbish strewn here and there.. come on guys.. keep it enjoyable for all of us. trig sits way above the tree tops and the view must be sensational..the gloom had rolled in since the morning. so views muted for me. trig missing cap but otherwise good. top of hill is almost fortress like.

Trail bike riders have made a horrible scar on the SE slope. Visited Fedw-lwyd & Mynydd Tri Arglwydd before returning very wet to car.

Visited on a circular walk from Corris Hostel. Visibility was less than 100m, hence the poor score.

Drove to within 500m along minor road between Aberllefenni & Mallwyd. Parked in junction between road and forest road - plenty of room, walked along forestry track to gate through forestry boundary fence and ascended what is possibly the steepest slope in Wales. How trail bikes ascend them I'll never know. Rhayader_Wanderer is correct in describing this as a gem of a summit. It is. The only down on this day was the cloudy view to Cadair Idris, which of course cleared after descent. Views all around were superb even to Plynlimon.

Super hill, Mynydd Cwmcelli, take first right off main forest road and keep going until open hillside, then its a steep ascent directly or go round to SW for easier ascent route. Dry and clear but cloudy.

Neat stone pillar [mostly slate]. Metal plug [raised letters]. Public. Access Land. Snowdonia National Park. Route from Aberllefenni, following clear wide track through Dyfi Forest, then ascent to trig by steep rutted bikers' track.

Superbly built with local stone and fine viewpoint. Designed with just one hole but this was jammed with plastic bottle. Looks as though this area is heavily infested with trail-bikers, none around today fortunately!

Lovely views fro pillar,some of the best in mid Wales,isolation factor spoilt by off -road damage to path i followed,but today was v quiet,easier than expected with access out of Forest then short climb to level summit within 150 metres of pillar.

Lovely views.
