Long Mountain - Beacon Ring MW-026 [2min walk] or Y Golfa [dodge the golfers] nearby are open. Allt y Main NW-059 is a good one - dramatic viewpoint above Meifod, narrow top with fence and trig [luxury] and a waymarked,ankle kind trail to the top. I’d like to go to Upper Park one day too.

I beg to differ David - not when it’s very muddy it ain’t! It can then be re-classified an ankle breaker in my case! Now MW-027 Moel y Golfa, on the other hand … :wink:

Glad you got down safely from Y Lliwedd & Yr Wyddfa.

Hi Ricky,

I agree with David about Y Golfa GW/NW-061. One of my favorite summits. Park at the golf club and you can be at the trig point in about 20 minutes.

Tricky one working VHF vertical QRP and and will be very difficult to qualify on a hand held. Good HF summit.

Hi Ricky

MW-030 Stingwern Hill is also nearby and worth considering. It’s a very short walk if your Mum is waiting. Plenty of tips for this one.
