From the car park at Bylchau r Llyn. Followed forestry track to the boggy permissive path which leads up to the trig. Mist and drizzle so no view. Original cap in place.

Parked in long lay-by at SN706586 and walked up RoW towards Cefn-yr-esgair-fawr. Continued this bearing and climbed up on access land to high point S of Craig y Fintan. Across tussocky and boggy ground to TP, with fine views of Tregaron two miles away. On to permissive path through Cwm Berwyn Plantation, and via forest road to the view point, looking down Cwm Berwyn. On to road, and 2 miles back to car. Great walk.

Another fine pillar in a wonderful setting. Parked upu to the North near Cwmberwyn, then was a sharp climb on access land. Even though we are in the middle of a dry spell the land here always seems to be able to produce vast areas of moving bog which can be a bit strange to walk on! Occasionally followed meandering Quad bike tracks across the worst bits as figured if it could hold a quad bike it could cope with my beer belly! Pillar is on small ridge with excellent views over Tregarron and further West.

There is a good pull in before the footpath up to Caebwyd from Beulah but a swing round on back lanes to Pant Glas would give a better route. still very rough walk to a full intact trig
