Did this one whilst on a holiday with the East Staffs ramblers. Caught the bus from the hotel to Llidiart y parc and followed the Dee Valley Way and some steep paths to the pillar. Descended via the Clwydian way to the Chain Bridge Hotel and back to Whitewaters Hotel. Spectacular views on a blustery day but well worth the effort.

A round of hills from Horseshoe Pass, this the only trig. Walking SW to NE with horrendous wind behind us, very difficult keeping upright taking photos etc, had to tie GPS down to trig to get a waypoint averaging GR. Pillar badly damaged, substantially worse than 2006 pics, but not so different from 2009 - harsh winters over that period? Original cap in place, lightly indented lettering; RHD sight hole open, front sight hole plug deteriorating to point where there's little of it left. Extensive 360deg views.

Gets the 7 for the views. The approach is badly scarred by off roaders. Walk from due W at high point, followed track which links with the off roaders damaged track. The views stretch off to the NE with a wide scar of a track for 4x4 s. No would would think there are already hundreds of thousands of miles of roads for vehicles ( most so badly maintained that they are only suitable for 4x4s anyway!!) that they still have to drive up the hills.Anyway pillar is badly damaged with the flush half exposed.
