Hello and thank you for all who spotted and contacted me (operating 2W0PYG/P) on Friday.
This summit was the location for my first successful activation.
Thank you for all your QSO’s.
It was quite a steep climb from the SW side.
My approach route was via the old quarry and up past a natural lake Ylyn Y foel
I looked up at the Daear Ddu ridge and thought no way! so I walked further west to the left of the ridge and picked a way up slowly.
once I reached the Trig point it was an unexpected but most welcome surprise to have activated the summit in under 15 mins with 4 QSO’s back to back.
The WX held out and I went on to make a staggering 25 QSO’s. Thank you!
Once the cloud started to gather over head it was time to leave, I picked the decent via NE as this seemed to gentler.
The timing was close, no sooner had I donned the waterproof trousers visibility was limited.
The decent was a safe (yet boggy)one, with a slight detour on the final bit to realign on a suitable route back to the bridge at Pont-Cyfyng.
