Interesting ascent from Bedwellty Pits to the E. Deciduous woods then disused stone quarry with remains of winding drums at top of incline. Good views from summit

Parked on the mountain roadside grass verge opposite disused quarry and walked up the hill over rough heathland to the trig, about 600m each way. Pillar is in reasonable condition; some chipping to the top has exposed one of the spider arm ends. 2 sight holes are sealed, 1 is open, and 1 is a becoming unsealed. The cap is missing; residue from a tarmac plug is present. Hence recording as 'slightly damaged'. Good views west over the Rhymney Valley.

Parked on road bend @ SO 141058 to SW and used trods in heather (not bad - easy sheep pasture and small bilberry bushes)

Parked the car on the minor road to the west and walked up from there using the sheep tracks through the heather. Nice day for bagging a trig.

Easy access from the West,biggest danger is letting your car out of sight in these valleys(speaking from experience)! I cant love these places ,and coming straight here from the edge of Abergwesyn Common near Beulah the contrast couldnt be greater. Pillar in good condition for the area with none of the graffiti and vandalism that usually greets you at pillars in this area.

After my previous two visits in the area I was just pleased to see this upright and in one piece. Good panorama, but not outstanding. I could see no crack in the pillar as per last log, though there are a couple of lumps off the top.
