Came up from the east on the path from Penycae. There was some heather to cross but it was well worth it for some top quality views from the pillar.

A circuit of Eglwyseg Mountain, Ruabon Mountain South trig and Cefn Y Cist which included some heather bashing on a reasonable morning. Watch out for snares.

Parked at SJ233484, and followed path, Once off main path tracks become quite faint in places.WARNING -Wire snares have been placed on some of the tracks so take care in poor visibility or if you take your dog with you.

Visited this trig and the other northern one on the moor this afternoon, they were both in good condition. Very tiring walking over the bracken.

I don't think there is any path to this after you leave the track running a bit to the south. Wonderful expanse of purple heather in all directions. Visited from Offa's Dyke - bit of a scramble up rocks as I went up the wrong gully.

Wonderful approach off the Offas Dyke Path, then lost path in the bracken. What followed would have been embarrassing if anyone had seen.... a grown man cursing and sweating his way through thigh high heather..only to re discover the path 50ft from the pillar. Bugger. Returned a different way but the paths are unclear so made a hash of that as well! Pillar is good, with excellent 360 views.

Not on highest point of Eglwyseg Mountain (half a mile NW) Lots of thick heather and ripe bilberries.
