Parked in fair sized space at start of bridleway near Ty Bach SE of pillar. Followed bridleway until it petered out (which is long before what is shown on the map) then headed directly to pillar. Bogs were fairly dry today, would be challenging after prolonged wet weather. Excellent view.

Built from cemented rocks on rock plinth on side of large (Neolithic?) cairn. Mountain high point surrounded by moorland of grass, heather and billberry. Extensive views.

10 mile walk on Gorllwyn and Drygarn Fawr, on a lovely sunny day. I was expecting the walk between the two to be hideous and boggy, but it hasn't rained up here for ages so it was bone dry underfoot, made for very easy grassy terrain. Lovely area.

Visited Craig Chwefru first, then on to this TP. Started opposite Abernefal and headed W towards Bryn Du, roughly following Nant Nefal - first 500m was difficult going, with very boggy ground. At crest, headed SW to TP. Pillar is stone-built, and stands on a cairn with a section of wall. Good views for many miles all round, but not particularly inspiring. Continued by hiking NE to Y Gamriw.

Left the house at 05.45am. Stars out and a clear sky. It was still dark when I left the car at a lay-by just south of Cwmdulas Farm on the minor road souh of the mountain. Followed track onto mountain to a point north of Allt y Ddinas. Then followed sheep tracks north west for a just over 2 miles in thick fog. Found the trig and then returned. On the way back whist crossing boggy ground I pushed through reeds only to fall into a water filled hole. Wet to the waist. An unpleasant slog back to the car, this time following the Dulas.

over from y gamrhiw which looks horrendous..and probably could be.. but providing you stick with the higher buts its really not that bad. man alive this is a special place. the sky is just vast. what id do to be able to lug my telescope up here! pillar is plastered in moss snd lichens and is sheltered to a degree in a stony circue. returned to our start point on this occasion pathlessly via cwm chwefri which was really plasant. have also decended via cwm marchant which leads to the old mine which has uncapped shafts.

vgc, shapely stonebuilt trig, no cap or plug. On concrete base built into big old cairn. Grassy summit, big view; cloud lying in the valleys. 3 trig circuit from SN865534; 1st mile or so gorgeous on a spring morning: Redstart singing.

A Feb visit and thankful for the frosty ground. still a hard slog across from its neighbour and a tough descent but 4.25 hours for the loop suits me. Third walk and sunday lunch at home in a row.

Why donít you make the tea or plan a walk for tomorrow, said my wife yesterday when I was looking particularly miserable. So one fish pie and a look at the weather forecast and here I was. Unfortunately these tops were in cloud so I was glad of the cairn next to the trig to shelter in and work out my bearings to the next top. This mossy stone trig is full of character.

Didn't fancy a long drive so opted for a revisit of my local 2000ft summit and pick up a grid ref and some photos. If you use GPS trackmaker I can supply a tracklog for this and Drygarn as a safety net in misty contitions.

Its a real bog slog in wet weather as with linked Drygarn Fawr. This was the day of the great Dudley earthquake which was about midnight that night, I felt tremours as I was on solid rock on Gorllwyn, at the time I thought it was artillery - now I reckon pre-tremors - who knows.
