Parked in the small car park by the phone box. Steep pull up to trig which has splendid views. Carried on to Drygarn.

Superb views to all points on a beautiful June day. Started from Abergwesyn village hall car park, along roadway NE for 400m, then ascended on bridleway via Trysgol. First of two TPs on a 10-mile walk. On to TP at Garn Wen, via Coed Trallwm, and return via minor road. An excellent day's hiking.

Walked up from car park just before Abergwesen and along bridle way to access land. Good condition with slight cracking. Good views towards Drygarn. Metal Plug

Had looked at a few ways to this one, in the end parked at start of bridleway to the SW of the cafe at Trallwm,follow the main bridleway for about a kilometre until you reach a green barn and a holiday cottage. Through gate, cross stream then skirt woodland to reach the access land. From there its a pleasant walk with expansive views to reach the pillar which is in vgc. Could easily be combined with Drygarn for a longer walk.

A few insignificant cracks; no cap or plug; pillar cast directly onto rock outcrop; fine little summit. Group of ponies nearby. 3 trig circuit from SN865534; descending off this last one I met a young landownerish chap: Not strictly a path, he said ...
