GW/SW-001


Summit Information for GW/SW-001
Pen y Fan - 886m, 8 points
Association: Wales  Region: South Wales   
Latitude: 51 53 2 N, Longitude: 3 26 12 W
Grid Reference: SO 012216, QTH Locator: IO81GV



Following some overnight snow, I woke to a clear sunny day and decider it was too good an opportunity to miss for an activation.  I quickly bundled  the kit in the Jeep and headed for Pen Y Fan.
There is ample parking at SN987 199, but arrive early as this is a very popular walk.  From here there is a good path all the way to the summit but it gets very slippery in winter so go prepared.  The path levels out at SO 006 210 and from here you can either continue straight on to Pen Y Fan or go left up to the summit of Corn Du and then on to Pen Y fan.
At the summit conditions were amazing, it was mild with just a light breeze and visibility was the best I have ever encountered from here.
I set up for VHF and had a very enjoyable activation including a summit to summit with Rod and Viki on GW/SW-011
Many thanks to all stations that assisted with my activation of Pen Y Fan and made this an very enjoyable day.
