From the Llyn Brianne dam parking area. Followed Dusty's route, but in reverse to avoid the steep climb out of the Doethie Valley. Lovely remote trig with expansive views. Pillar is in vgc with original cap. The Brecon Beacons and Black Mountain are almost completely hidden from view by forestry apart from a tantalising glimpse of Corn Du. The return to the dam via the wonderful Afon Doethie was superb.

Lovely walk from Llyn Brianne Dam. West to the Afon Pysgotwr Fawr then north along the Afon Doethie. Stiff climb up to the trigpoint and back via forest tracks.

Lovely location.Parked at Soar Y Mynydd Chapel to the NE and cycled in on bridleway via farm ( Nant Llwyd. When you reach the farm the bridleawy goes between the farmhouse and the barns ) saw friendly farmer who pointed this out as I sailed past into his farmyard! Continue until you reach an obvious high point , then turn due S to the pillar. Great expansive views and peace and quiet. Pillar in vgc.
