GW/SW - 025


GW/SW 025 4/2/12. - Cefn Eglwysilan
Height 382 M / 1253 ft
Grid reference SN 097905

Surprising what you find up in the mountain when you go out walking ! take care when driving on icy roads (PS. not my car)

Leaving the warmth of home to walk up a mountain we must have been mad!

The group consisted of Mal(GW6 OVD), Phil (2W0 PJJ), Alex (MW6 AZP) & Corinne (alex's mum) leaving the cars in a small car park and walking up the on the side of a wall proved to be challenging.

On reaching the summit we quickly setup camp however the water we had brough with us had frozen so tea and coffee would have wait!

Contacts we made as far as Somerset and Ilfracombe. recording of the contact was made difficult by the freezing of the pen lucky a pencil was found.

Soon the weather started to turn and started snowing quite bad. It was time to pack up loosing visibility, showing how quickly you could become lost on the mountain top but lucky we have corinne who has fantastic map reading skills.

On returning to the cars after slipping and sliding, was I glad to see the cars and warmth !.

What a fantastic morning spent.
