Parked at the right of way path just passed Finger Farm and followed a track all the way up. Quite tricky to spot the most direct track going through the heather once over the second gate. We followed the track beside the fence by mistake, but managed to zig zag our way up to the trig and followed the direct route down.

Found as YOSM 678. Parked near Finger Farm and made the walk up the footpath to the Pillar which wasn't spotted until we were close. Passed a geocache on route as well - good to visit here whilst the YOSM was at the Welsh MEGA.

A lovely evening walk along the tracks and the across the heather to the pillar and the cairn. I didn't even realise I had lost one of my sunglasses lenses. I even took a selfie and didn't notice. Cheers.

Lovely walk up from the road. Steady climb all the way. Path not clear through the heather but followed a sheep track. Unusual, as you don't see the trig until you get there as it is hidden behind a hump. Amazing views.

This is my closest trig point, cracking views from up here, if it isn't blowing a gale and foggy like today

Angel of Y Foel, lol Managed this shot in strong winds then got blown off it by a strong gust, will re visit soon when it is better weather.

Visited this hill on a misty morning starting out from Llangollen. The long ascent deserved good views as a reward, but it wasn't until I was well on the way back down that I got some glimpses into the lovely Ceiriog Valley.

Bagged on a 14 mile walk taking in Y Foel trig, Vivod Mountain and Moel Fferna which we thought was going to have a trig.

First light: Trig 1 of 9 on the Leventon Line, Llangollen to Barmouth, 56 miles: we had left Llangollen at 04:30. Alan Duncan navigating, found a path from the forest corner which led straight to the trig. Keeps a bit L at start I think.

Had this down as a quick walk across the hillside as feeling dodgy from the effects of Nuneaton food from yesterdays logs!,Berwyn heather decided i would have to struggle a little .Was worth the effort ,lovely views and a peacefull spot,bit of a change from yesterdays towns and grime!

Another lovely spot above Llangollen surrounded by heather with great distant views [near views are restricted by gentle slope of hill]. The plug is missing but otherwise the condition is good with paint showing on all four faces. Another one with a rectangular recess above the flush bracket as if a plate or something has been there in the past. There is a cairn about 20 yards from the pillar and also a shallow artificial hole with a heap of spoil, so whether this was an old mine I don't know.
