Quite a bit of damage, especially at the base of the pillar. But the views more than make up for that. A lovely high level walk in the Black Mountains. We started from a bit north of Llanbedr taking in the hill fort at Crug Hywel and then Pen Cerrig-calch before hitting this trig, then continued north to Pen Twyn Glas before returning.

Enjoyed clear conditions, so the views were good through 360 degrees. The pillar has a significant lean and a number of cracks. Erosion around it has left it on a plinth of boulders.

on route to this from Pen cerrig-calch I had planned to do something new and went in search of Merlin's cache 5,even armed with the great clue that it's under a flatish boulder with heather behind( not many of then up here)I could not find it,anyway 1 evening soon I will go looking closer to home and track 1 down, moving back to the trig,it's seen better days but is hanging in there and the views from it are very good.
