GW/SW - 009

GW/SW 009   25/02/12. - Mynydd Troed

Height 609M / 1997 ft
Grid reference SO 166293

Arriving at the foot of the hill at 10.10am, at a height of 300m we still had 309m to go! The first section of the walk starts as a gradual climb, however the gradient soon increased and the heart rate too!





Taking time for a pose for a photo with a chance to take a breather.



More photos with some fantastic views can be viewed in the photo gallery on the top right.

The peak behind in the photo proved to be a challenge with many stops to catch your breath as the gradient was very steep. The gradient eased towards the last section of the climb and sight of the summit was most welcomed.

After finding a hollow to shelter from the wind, contacts were soon made on 2 metres and 4 metres.
