YSM443 Mumbles Hill Terrain 1.5 (due to high parking area) Difficulty 1.5 Both very tired teds by now but more YOSMs on the list yet to bag! Mr U2 spotted a high parking spotted so we headed up the narrow streets and were soon at the top and then faced with a relatively flat walk to the trigpoint, sure the views are stunning in daylight!

Parked in Braclet Car Park. Price has gone up since Peregrinus was here. Walked up to diagonal path and got wet legs after recent rain. Decent track up to aerials and then on. Remarkably undamaged for a towny pillar. Views over bay now beginning to disappear as the vegetation grows. Glowering clouds over Swansea and the Independent Republic of there Welsh valleys.

I now have my own name and so I am back logging all the Trigs that I found with the Fishteers, I am logging the find on the same day that I found it with the Fishteers and am then deleting that log. Big Fish and MicroFish visited this Trig today as we ran out of time when we were in the area on the 30/07/11 for the Picnic at The Big Apple event as part of Mega Wales. Some lovely views from up here today. Logged on YOSM as YSM443

This pillar is very visible and easily accessible being at the side of a walked footpath. I parked in a car park on the promenade using the non-transferable parking ticket that I had obtained at Black Pill! Then walked up the steps to the top of the cliffs and the pillar. In good condition although the plug has gone walk about. Stunning views over Swansea from up here.

Lots of paths but if you park at Braclet bay dont be tempted to head directly back after 20 mins I can confirm I didn't find a route through the gorse and traversed back to the main path. Would have uploaded some pretty twinkling Swansea lights but the batteries ran out and my spares were in the GPS :-)

There I was trig bagging in East Gower yesterday thinking I was the first to bag this group only to look at the web site today and realise the extraordinary coincidence that three of us were in the area the same weekend. The only one I got to first was this one on Mumbles Hill and missed the others by less than half an hour!!! The trig overlooks Swansea Bay and bought back lots of memories as I spent six years in college here. Good condition except plug missing and not replaced. A swearing tent was pitched nearby and sounds like it was still cursing 25 mins later!
