Geocache YSM0397. Easily accessed, but there is a knotted rope to help you up the final few feet, but it is not really necessary. Great 360 degree view from here.

Parked on lane at junction of restricted byway and walked south on footpath to lake. Then on track around lake to trig point. My wife found the rope very useful up the last few yards to the trig.

A pillar that is quite easy to access, less than a mile walk, good underfoot with just a bit of a rope climb at the end, yes, really. The views from the pillar were fantastic, I spent quite some time spotting all the places I could recognise, including Moel Famau where I was just a few days ago. I also got to see some lizards and an adder, what more could a boy ask for!

Easy walk up the track from the fishing lake, whilst passing by on a geocaching trail. The last part involves a short climb up a steep heather-covered slope, but there is a rope in place to help if conditions are slippery. As expected good views all around. Top of pillar is damaged, plug missing.

I drove up the rough track from the A5104 to the carpark at the fishing lake and asked if it was OK to park there whilst I walked up to the trig point. Absolutely, no problem was the reply. The short walk up to the trig was well worth it as it was a nice clear morning and the views all around were fantastic.

Now in middle of open access land so no permission needed parking is an issue though but you can pull onto the verge by the footpath west of the fishery entrance and avoid their clamping threats. Footpath up then used access rights to come down though the heather direct to the car. M

Permission must be obtained from the fish farm before visiting this one. Spider intact but plug is missing. The pillar is supporting an amateur radio antenna. Used to be a huge dish antenna close to this trig point. Address should be Pen-Y-Ffridd.
