A great walk. Pillar has some cracks in it.

Not sure how it got this name, seems there's a far more appropriate one that could have been used. Anyway, a worthwhile trig to visit for the quality of the walk and the views. Lovely country here on the Black Mountain in the western part of the Brecon Beacons. A crisp day with some heavy frost on the ground at all levels, the trig looked in good condition, but the spider is a bit exposed.

Stopped off at this pillar on our circular route around Bannau Sir Gaer from Blaenau. The cloud lifted quite suddenly as we left the TP giving us sudden views of the spectacular scenery to the North and East. Carried on to Llyn y fan Fawr where we camped and had a wonderfully clear moonrise over the lake followed by a spectacular sunrise in the morning.

We walked here from TP1915, and the scenery -- some of which is shown in the photographs -- was magnificient. Better still was my father's very first ascent of a trig point, in the fearsome wind! By the way, the number on the flush bracket is _definitely_ 2975, not S2975.

I would say the base was eroding a bit. I also didn't see the S on the baseplate. All I saw was 2975. I looked for the S but I'm certain it wasn't there. Strange, I thought they all started with S round these parts.

Another Cambrian Way trig but why isnt it named Fan Brycheiniog, Carmarthen Fan or Black Mountain? Great views on the ridge climb from Glyntawe.

Fan Brycheiniog, 802m and a corbett. First visited during the Fastnet Gale of 1979, to date one of the worst storms I have been out in. Been back a few times since

Logging this retrospectively from 2010. I had admired this ridge from afar for about 20 years before finally getting here. A wonderful day.

Did this couple of times while at school - they owned a cottage nearby. In the Black Mountain, not to be confused with the more easterly Black Mountains!
