Lovely circular walk from minor road above holiday village at Trawsfynnyd. Great views and didnt see a soul for hours! Pillar has no flush bracket.

I began the morning nice and early at Penrhos Isaf, to the southeast of Ganllwyd. I followed forest tracks and the old Roman Road Sarn Helen northwards, seeing some deer along the way. I took the Penystryd footpath which led across access land to 500 metres west of the trig. I had to walk round it twice to make sure that I hadn't missed the flush bracket. It was overcast and dull, but I could still see for many miles from the pillar. I descended through sheepy fields and joined the unfenced road between Bodyfuddau and Bronasgellog, leaving me with just a couple more kilometers to cover into Trawsfynydd.

Fragile-looking stone pillar. Metal plug [raised letters]. Public. Access Land. Snowdonia National Park. From minor road at Penystryd, east of Bronaber holiday village, direct strike across tussocky moor to large lake Llyn Gelli-Gain. Hill & trig clearly visible from there on good day. Easily reached & not a hard ascent. Featureless moorland landscape & should not be ventured into in poor visibility.

Stonebuilt pillar, top screed damaged exposing end of spider. Metal cap, wide raised letters. No FB. Nice grassy summit. Simple ascent from SE (large passing place), skirting N of boggy area at start.

Think would have excellent view if it wasnt for the heat haze today! Quite a trodge up over damp heather and bogs, but worth it. There is also a concrete platform nearby? Translates as: Cold Stream Hill

Left house at 0730 & was walking by 0800. Farm track runs all way to .404, then a surprisingly long slog ('trodge' is right Barry!) over boggy ground to trig. Interesting slate construction at head of intervening re-entrant(?) Difficult track to follow around N slopes on way down. Pretty little slate footbridge crosses river by road.
