Jimmy and I have been getting organised with our planning for 2016. In addition to the trip to GI at the end of June, we have booked accommodation in Snowdonia in August. Despite one end of GW/NW being virtually “on the doorstep” (well, an hour’s drive), there’s still a significant chunk of the region for us yet to activate for SOTA, and included are some iconic mountains. One particularly annoying fellow here in Macclesfield teases us all the time about us being involved with SOTA for 14 years yet never having activated Tryfan, Carnedd Llewelyn, Glyder Fawr, Y Garn (either of them) etc. He has a point; we’ve even finished GW/SW first!
One of the days, we will attempt the four summit classic of GW/NW-006 - GW/NW-003 - GW/NW-004 - GW/NW-005. We would be hoping to qualify all four SOTAs with 2m HTs for speed, convenience and keeping the pack weight down. So we will be relying on local chasers to be listening out for us, and more distant chasers to be doing all the work for us!
As usual, if anyone wants to join us for joint activations / joint expeditions, they would be more than welcome.
