Terrific views and a short walk from the car, although the ascent is quite steep for the casual walker. Wonderful views of the mythical lake of Glasgyn, as well as the rest of the countryside. Many good birds and butterflies (and sheep).

Need to revisit this pillar as it's one I'd been wanting to do for years and I managed to time it with some quite dreary weather conditions today.

Visited while walking part of Glyndwr's Way. Highest pillar visited so far. Stunning views. Pillar in good nick, but base is eroded.

Fantastic day except for a viciously cold wind. Pillar is on a raised concrete plinth. The plug is missing and there is no paint visible. S/E sightholes open, others closed. Lovely views.

Low cloud and swirling misty weather conditions made the views intermittent but very good for all that. Started from Aberhosan and did a circular route from there. Remnants of what could have been a roman candle on the top of the trig so maybe someone had celebrated the Jubilee earlier.

Short walk up from Wynford Vaughan Thomas memorial. Not much sign of path marked on map. Had to hop fence up & down. Sheeting down with rain, next to no views hence low score. Unfair I know! No plug

vgc, no cap or plug. Compact grass/bilberry summit, albeit in cloud. Easy climb from SE. Rainy start, precursor to a fine day.

Visit detected today when I stumbled upon photo of pillar and large mountain top lake. (I'm geotagging all my pix). A break on the way back from the Centre for Alternative Technology in its early days.
