In reply to MM0FMF:
I thought you might bite :0) (a previous heated discusion springs to mind) but I had not seen the news of said hill being promoted anywhere on the reflector so I thought it worth a mention.
I am finding it all a bit amusing but…
There are implications for map-makers, walkers and runners. Future editions of maps will have to be altered to reflect Glyder Fawr’s new status, and tourism brochures will have to be redesigned. A race taking in the Welsh peaks above 1,000 metres will be rethought and a flood of extra walkers is expected to arrive in Snowdonia to bag the fifth super mountain.
I can just imagine the fell runners saying “Oh great now we have to do another one!”, but then those guys/gals are just bonkers so they probably will think it is great. “Why do you do it?” “Because it feels so good when I stop!”
I don’t think I will be doing it any time soon, not without a companion who does not mind walking with a snail.
I am sure the details will have been Tweeted in the interest of Welsh pride. Bigger, better, higher more.
