Great walk up to Table Mountain and on up to the trig for a lunch break. Lovely views all around to the mountain tops with other trig points. Pillar cracked about a third of its height.

Lovely circular walk taking in three tops.Started and finished at "Green Cottage" to the SE. The hard part is the 460m ascent from the start,the rest is a bit easier! Summit is rocky and familiar from my round of the Welsh Hewitts. Pillar has some surface cracks but nothing too bad. Did not see a soul in 9 miles,and the weather was excellent.

We'd visited this trig before whilst doing the "Black Mountains Roundabout" a 25 mile challenge walk to raise money for Mountain Rescue but this was before I started trigpointing. Visited today whilst geocaching in the area. No visability today, what a terrible summer.

A sad looking trig which is cracked and looks like it's been patched up quite some time ago. Views good from nearby, though the summit is quite flat. Weather cleared up as soon as we started the descent!
