Bit of a struggle to get here and there are no views now due to the forestry. Nice old cairn next to it.

Revisit with my daughter (who was able to confirm to her siblings, "Yes, he really does traipse miles looking for concrete blocks."). Bagged TPs Gwar-Allt, and Mynydd Rhos y Corn en route to forest entrance at SN497354. Walked through the forest on trails to TP and looped back to start. Weather started chilly and overcast, but soon opened up into a warm, bright day.

Parked at SN509316 on v minor road from Brechfa. Easy walk on forest logging roads and tracks to SN478336. At this point, a forest ride can just be made out, and this leads to the TP in about 200m (slower going, and watch out for boggy sections, but nothing too bad). It's easier to spot the ride if walking the track in a SW direction.

Parking to the West at end of dead end lane. There is a large wind farm nearing completion. Follow path to woodland then SE along wood edge to reach firebreak at SN476006 33206 then when you reach forest road go approx 200m NE to SN47800 33612 where another firebreak leads straight to the pillar. Good condition.

Mrs Dusty did not fancy the last 50m through 15ft conifers and very boggy ground. Worth it to see the heavily moss covered trig. Return journey with very wet feet.

I parked up at 5159.519'N, 413.604'W and walked up first the narrow track and then the forestry roads, tracking in towards the trig. At 5158.807'N, 413.062'W I spotted a long thin clearing (a fire break) that ran directly towards the trig point. The undergrowth was thick and at times a little boggy but I've put up with far worse than this - and I did this in my work shoes rather than my walking boots and never felt water on my feet... It's obvious this trig point is rarely visited (I needed to kick off the moss to read the flush bracket) - but if someone wants a good invigorating walk with a slightly more challenging last 200m - this one is a good one to do.
