GW/SW-004


Summit Information for GW/SW-004
Waun Rydd - 769m, 6 points
Association: Wales  Region: South Wales   
Latitude: 51 52 33 N, Longitude: 3 21 50 W
Grid Reference: SO 062206, QTH Locator: IO81HV 



There is a picnic area and a good size car park at the start point 
SO 056 175 with room a dozen or more cars




The well established path rises steeply for the first kilometer or so  then eases off to a much gentle climb




One of the three waterfalls visible from the path on the initial climb 




As the path levels out and follows the ridge around towards Waun Fach there are some spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and valley below.  After 1.9k the path split where I crossed the stream and  headed off to the right.




The path becomes a little precarious from here as its very close to the edge.  As you rise towards the summit I could see a snow covered Pen Y Fan to my left




The summit is quite flat with plenty of room for antennas but conditions were cold and very windy. I found myself a nice sheltered little spot to set up the equipment and got started.

Many thanks to the stations listed below who helped with my activation of GW/SW-004
