Walked up the steep incline from the Eglwysilan Road. Low cloud had lifted in the time it took to get here from Mynydd Mayo down the road. Lovely 360deg views with wispy cloud in the valleys and over the towns. Pillar looks in good condition... apart from the horizontal crack on all 4 sides a few inches above the FB, surely this should categorize it as 'slightly damaged' at least? All 4 sight holes sealed; cap missing and no plug.

Great views despite low cloud - must be great in the summer. Very boggy on approach from CC12 GeoCache, but found a better way off by contouring around hill with masts. There is a crack around the pillar just above plate, some graffiti and a plastic pipe has been inserted into the 'hole'.

Nice viewpoint.pillar in good condition ,cant relax until I find the car still with its wheels on upon my return.Usual dumped rubbish on road up. Some of the locals may be pikeys that dump crap everywhere but I bet the decent folk still pay council tax ,so why dont the council clear fly tipped rubbish down this way? Maybe they think its a tourist attraction ? Personally if it wasnt for the pillars I would never ever visit this area. Am sure am not the only person to feel this way ,so think how much revenue (eating out,re visits,shopping etc. The area has lots to offer in terms of scenery and access but until they reign in the local oiks there is no hope) they will continue to miss out because everywhere looks like a landfill site. Sad place.

Used Etrex Legend (s/w 3.7 & 5m reported accuracy) to record waypoint in decimal degrees (WGS84) then converted using OSTN02. Input N51.60615, W3.30521, 393m. Output E 309709, N 190509, 341m hence ST0970990509. Saw a mad squirrel that was chased by a sheep to the top of the trig point and I could not resist these photos. Best access travelling NE from ST 61690282.

The weather must have been good as I managed to dreg the rest of the family up to this triple bag - trig, Marilyn and County Top. Good views and a great contrast to being in the valley not far below. The concrete plug on one of the sight holes is makeing a bid for escape!

Condition unchanged in last month. Parking again to the southwest either at point where footpath leaves the road to the SW or 100m further on in a passing space, road is quiet enough. Wind is now almost blowing me off my feet and the rain started about 2 minutes after I got back to the car My kind of timing:-)
