Parked up lane near to monument. Footpaths not easy to find but they are there. About a quarter of a mile to the trig. Good views over the Wirral and north Wales coast.

Cap missing with only SouthWest sight open. Lively green top to this BSM pillar sat in a water-filled bole today. A double rainbow moment on a day with hail, sleet, snow and knee-deep mud. Glorious!

Pen-Y-Ball ..Yay ..a faint double rainbow!

Got off the bus in the centre of Holywell and then headed straight up here. The visibility wasn't the best but there was still plenty of interest around the Dee Estuary. I then continued on to Bryn Cloddiau trig pillar.

Unfortunately I chose a misty day so the views weren't as good as I had hoped.
