Been whitewashed in its time. Desperately in need of a fresh coat. Well hidden behind large juvenile fir tree. If GPS did not say I was on trig pillar would not have looked so thoroughly.

climbing hills when full of a cold is no fun. from Banwen. good condition and almost festive looking in a coat of moss.

A very mossy pillar which could almost look Christmassy I suppose.. An easy enough walk from Banwen plenty of parking.

Decided that my Marilyns total needed addressing so came out for the day to visit this hill. Parked in Banwen and up the tracks from there. Had the hill all to myself today so no trucks, off-roaders or bikes. Did a bit of geocaching too on the way down. Nice day.

Walked up Sarn Helen- surrounded by roadworks and construction for windfarm. Trig is somewhat hidden by trees.

Walked up along Sarn Helen Roman road from residential cul-de-sac at Banwen to the N. Pillar has several chips from top edges and a roughly horizontal crack running along 2 sides near top of pillar, so have marked it 'slightly damaged'. Fair bit of moss covering it and a small conifer growing bigger immediately behind - no secateurs or coping saw with me so unable to prune back, but it needs it. Cap missing, asphalt plug; 1 sight hole open. Nearby spoil heap from open cast mine is now higher than the trig/hill summit. Limited views W; all other directions obscured by conifers.

Walked from Resolven, via TP5403 (Pen-y-Begwn), and along Sarn Helen. Very hot and humid, and billions of flying ants. TP is surrounded by sparse forestry, and, unlike shown on my OS map, is adjacent to N-most spoil tips from opencast workings. Made my way back via the opencast site (Bank Hol) and down very steep forested slope to SW to gain forest roads to Crugau.

Approached directly up a vast scree/mud slope in quarry on Seven Sisters side of hill. Then through trees. A couple of hundred metres further away a new higher(?) summit seems to be growing from earth moving activity.

Hirfynydd. Trig is up the slope and through 20m of trees!
Hirfynydd. Trig lies close to an established footpath.
Hirfynydd. Shallow cracks around upper part - slightly damaged.

Shallow crack around top section of pillar, otherwise intact. Resin plug. At heathery summit just S of track. Track from Seven Sisters driveable to quarry gate; simplest ascent probably forks L although I went R up steep zigzags and descended in same direction via wide forest road. I also visited the potential Marilyn twin summit just to SE but it's in process of being quarried: hopefully the trig's safe.
