From the power stn, broadly followed the power lines up the hill over rough heathery ground; small detour to the SW for the 'canyon'. Pillar doesn't appear to be at top of the hill. No cap/plug; rear sight hole open. Views not noted.

vgc, no cap or plug, tussocky heathery summit surrrounded by fairly dense spruce: best way from track is from ESE via power lines. I approached from WNW, driving first half mile then walking from locked gate. Probably easier from Sandbank via power lines.
