Bagged before heading S for the hill summit just below Penlle'r Castell. Cloud down on the hill, could hear wind turbines (not marked on my 1:25k), but not see until v. close - surreal! Rough moorland pasture. Pillar has dirty white paint job, flaking to reveal previous dirty white paint job. It's also leaning and has small exposed (sub-standard?) base. Original cap, raised lettering; rear sight hole only open. Absolutely no views.

Very visible from the road on a clear day but today it was dark and cloudy so didnt spot it till I was up close.

As others have mentioned, this trig point has recently been painted white, really making it stand out!

Its just had a new coat of white paint. I drove up the track to the mast and scampered across the moor. It was a miserable afternoon up here today with low cloud and no views.

Located on rather flat boggy hill top. I appraoched from south having walked from the trig point on Graig Fawr. This route from the road was rather boggy however the easiest appraoch is just off the track to the NW.

Room to park next to the small reservoir then walk up the track and over the open ground. Reasonable views and easy if wet terrain underfoot

Easily accessible, not far from the mast and viewpoint. It's in good condition, but has a bad paint job! White paint has dripped over the Flush Bracket.

FB of S2015, Mynydd Y Betws A badly painted Flush Bracket! But just about legible!
