Had been walking in the dark for a few hours by this point and very glad to soon be able to get down for a pot of tea in Llangurig.

Parked E of pillar in forest track entrance. Walked to the end of the road and followed the row to the first fenceline which I then followed to the trig. OK view.

Geocaching and trigging once again hand in hand. If it was not for a new little geo series I doubt I would have got up here, especially on a windswept wet day. Interesting to note the erosion to the West exposing the stones of the concrete where as the East is still a flat surface.

Parked at end of gated no through road and made up a short circular walk. Extremely windy at the summit but very good all round views. As we were leaving the parking spot, we spotted a stoat, a nice touch to finish the visit.

Quite hazy but glad to make it up here at last. Parking on the A44 is a bit aukward so drove round and walked in from the NE. Easy rolling hills to stretch out legs on and a Red Kite circling for company. Trig unchanged since last visitor

Great to see some more wind turbines just a few miles south; I was beginning to have withdrawal symtoms. The views from here are great all round. The pillar is in good condition with the original plug - another one of these funny flush bracket numbers like the last one. There are some slight chips in the pillar on the SW/NW faces and some paint visible on the SE/NE faces. The concrete base is a few inches proud of the grass. Nice spot.
