Used the cover of the woods to the south to approach this one. Was pleasantly surprised with the long range view to Bardsey and the Lleyn. Certainly worth the little bit of trespass to get to log.

Aberystwyth and distant tip of the Lleyn Peninsula

As previous logs, parked at the Footpath sign, walked past the bungalow then over a gate and round a field then up steep slope. Herd of young brown cows watched from a distance. Trig is wrong side of a barbed wire fence so had to climb over to reach it. On way down cows were a lot more interested and got a lot closer. Nice views from the top.

Despite previous logs I thought access was easy! Left bike locked to footpath sign. Walked past bungalow up footpath/farm road, through first gate, turned right to second gate, then left and VERY steep climb to pillar, just on other side of wire fence.

going up the back of the quarry is only really suitable for masochists and people who won't give up when they should. (i'm in the second group, by the way)

Went up through quarry - lots of thorn trees at the top! Decided not to jump the fence due to tractors working below. Trig visible ~50 away

Hard slog up parked opposite quarry but opted for field to west as route in eventually finding a hole to squeeze through in the hedge. Sharp climb up to summit with great view of Aberystwyth and the lower Rheidol valley. Trig condition unchanged. TReturned to eeast of quarry and things are even worse there.
