Pillar painter

Followed the obvious route up as suggested by other contributors, but returned via the forest track that runs parallel just to add some interest, which may be accessed via a stile next to the mast. Incidentally the formerly bright blue trig pillar is now a dazzling white! Who paints trig pillars for a hobby? Not much of a hill to write home about. 45 minutes up and down.
