Visited Castle Coch and Caerphilly Castle in morning. The weather has now improved to a warm sunny afternoon. Seemed a good plan to ascend the ridge and follow it North taking in three pillars.

Walked up the steep incline from the Eglwysilan Road. Cloud was down on the hill so viz restricted to approx 60m, hence low score. Pillar is in good condition, plinth is exposed and surrounded with mud; all 4 sight holes open; plug missing with no cap.

Had to negotiate some steep narrow roads. Easy parking on the common. Short steep climb to the top. Far reaching views but somewhat hindered by the flat summit. Fairplay, this is hill walking, trigpointing heaven around here!

Glaslyn would have liked it up here today - hardly any rubbish around. Oh no he wouldn't - there were some trail bikes doing their usual off road stuff. The trig is well protected by a moat at present. Went on to do a nearby cache - after all I'd done the hard bit and climbed the hill.

Despite the recent good weather it was cold and gray while I was here. The visibility was limited to a few miles.

Pillar looks in good condition, no cracks or graffiti. No plug in hole at the top - not sure of there should be although some seem to have tarmac in there (Sorry). Can't comment on views as cloud was in and visibility was about 50m.

Gets a 1 because of the amount of rubbish everywhere,some has obviously been there for years ... if I can see it surely the council can? Give me a van and 6 reprobates on Community Service and could make a hell of a difference in just 1 week,.......oh no sorry could not possibly do that could we ...that would improve quality of life and be totally against current political thinking .Pillar is good with fine views.

vgc, no cap or plug, pasture, flattish summit, fine view. Met a local on top who climbs it most days, pointed out Pen y Fan just visible to NNE.

Good views all round. The attached picture of the pillar is looking north and the main peaks of the Beacons (Pen y Fan and Corn Du) are the bumps on the skyline above the pillar. In the opposite direction are equally distant views across the Bristol Channel. Although Mayo may be a good approximation for pronounciation, Meio is the common and preferred spelling.

Used Etrex Legend (s/w 3.7 & 6m reported accuracy) to record waypoint in decimal degrees (WGS84) then converted using OSTN02. Input N51.58662 W3.27986 338m. Output E311426.42927 N188305.68517 286.375m hence ST1142688306. Strangely, the actual error seems to be larger than the reported error. Very good panoramic views. Lots of other trigpoints visible from here.

Continuing the run north. Good parking space beyond the cattle grid to the SW then a straight climb up the scarp face. Yesterdays 12 were in a normal business shirt today its back to microfleece and full fleece over it. Trig is plugless and lacking in paint but otherwise ok. Still nice views back to cardiff.
