ODP#16: short diversion up from ODP on a beautiful day with great views, including the coast, Clwydian Hills and Snowdonia. Shared the hill with three paragliders who were having a great time buzzing us. E and S s/holes open, others looking very weak, metal cap no letters, vgc.

Near linear walk from the small parking area at Clwyd Gate, icy start with thick greys fighting against a perfect blue sky. Berwyns visible.

Followed a badger the last 50yds up to the pillar. How odd! Kept about 20yds ahead of me and then nipped under fence and I lost sight of him(?).

Walked from the stile to the north east of the trig where there is space to park on the verge. Easy walk up but on a very wet day. Lots of poo to avoid. Great views on top.in between the rolling mist.

Had just been to Moel Gyw trig pillar north of here. Accessed the hill from the stile to the northeast and enjoyed unimpeded progress in a direct line right up to the trig. For the second time in the day I had no view from the top. I followed the fence down and then returned to Ruthin via the charming village of Graig-fechan.

Visited from Offa's Dyke path. Cross (high) stile across grass and follow the fence line up. Visited again on 23rd September hoping to find my altimeter which I lost on the day I last visited. No luck however.

Good parking to the NE on lane and Offas Dyke route, remembered passing this pillar when doing path 8 years ago. Lovely views to Snowdonia. Pillar in good condition.

Lovely sunny day. Was logged on a 6 mile circular walk from Llandegla. Near to a weather station. Great views along the Clwydian Range to Jubilee Tower and the Bodfari mast. See photos.

It's all intact but the original plug has a metal replacement. All sightholes closed. Very little white paint visible. Good views again from here!
