Plenty of parking in laybys S of trig. Followed tracks to sheep field then straight to pillar. Low cloud so no view today.

Nice walk up from the country park car park which costs 1 for the whole day at this time of yeat. Just managed to get space in the car park in amongst the mountain bikers and christmas tree buyers. The track up is quite steep in parts but a pleasant walk. visited the summit forst then the trig. Celebrated back in the cafe with a mug of coffee and a piece of walnut cake. The car park has a jet wash for the bikes and skowers for the bikers. I was thinking that I've never seen such good facilities provided for walkers!

Good parking at Afon Argoed country park car park, clear paths to within 400m or so of trig. Visited summit of hill first (as it's a HuMP), trig is 200m S and 2m lower in elevation. Pillar in generally good condition although there is a crack extending across front and left side; it stands on a substantial concrete plinth. Cap missing, no plug - spider painted white; rear sight hole only open. Good views in most directions; to N only Foel Trawsnant hill summit visible, with part of wind farm beyond; S to sea; E & W to hills.

From SE. Lower track round east side Pen-y-lan wood impassible due to many fallen trees. However, there is a new track in SW direction from lower track @ SS 847928 which leads to higher walk-able track
