Bolt set into concrete at top of Craig-y-garn. Only had a swiss army knife to locate it and remove a couple of inches of turf, but seemed to work ok. Left it uncovered.

Easily found thanks to photo. Covered with thin turf. Recovered. In summit shelter. Rain and wind. Off to Hebbog (if possible) in cloud. Didn't make it. Got to within half a mile but defeated by high wind, cloud, cold and old age. Still better safe than sorry. Think that's one of the secrets of walking alone - knowing when to turn back. Well that's my excuse.

This surface block is still surviving just a metre away from the summit rock. It is almost completely covered over with grass now, but I didn't need to dig too much to find the bolt to confirm that it was all still in place. The hill falls into the HuMP catergory and is really well worth visiting, with first rate views to be had across to the Nantlle ridge, Moel Hebog, Rhinogs and the Lleyn Peninsula.

A nice walk up from Garndolbenmaen in the unseasonal sunshine. No sign of anything at the grid ref indicated. The grass may have grown over it or its hidden under the multitude of rocks at the summit. Nice views from the summit and I bagged the nearby geocache. Well worth the effort. I have given it high marks due to the excellent views.
