|Easy enough to locate the trig amongst the mature trees surrounding the summit area. Lower down trees have been harvested and new ones planted.||hill walker||27/10/2018|
|Bagged as YSM137 Trusta D3/T3 - Hoping for an easy start to the day but nae such luck. 1:25k map nothing like the reality on the ground and path marked as going straight to trig from main track doesn't exist. After walking way past a track we could have took, we back tracked and agreed this was the best option. It was muddy and snowy and much churned up by forestry vehicles but it got us nearer to the trig and on the higher path. Again we couldn't see the fire break and again walked past the track we could take. Back tracked and headed up across the ditch trying to use the log with little success and headed into to the trees. Luckily we had found the fire break and other than a few fallen trees it was relatively easy. Trig and cache very close together and quickly spotted. The firebreak was like something out of Narnia and we both hoped for James McAvoy would appear out of the forest at any moment. ;-)||thejackrustles||24/02/2017|
|Did some cross country to get to here, all roads on the ground not on my map. Found the jar with the log book for the trig pillar. Used the track back & compass to get us out of the trees, was dark before we got back to the car. An adventure for a 6 year old||LizzieG||01/03/2015|
