GW/SW 006 & 007

Fan Gyhirych - 725m, 6 points  
Latitude: 51 51 33 N, Longitude: 3 37 35 W
Grid Reference: SN 881191, QTH Locator: IO81EU

Fan Nedd - 663m, 4 points  
Latitude: 51 51 12 N, Longitude: 3 34 46 W
Grid Reference: SN 913184, QTH Locator: IO81FU 

Our starting point for today's activation is SN 923 190 near the standing stone where the  parking is very limited.
After crossing the stile, Phil and Ian headed SW towards the summit of Fan Ned, while Andy and I headed NW, following the dry stone wall.  Its only a short walk from here until we came to main path that cuts around the base of the mountain.  After about 2k we crossed some boggy ground in the valley and headed up to the west until we met the gravel track.  This track leads almost to the summit of Fan Gyhirych and has quite a gradual climb.  As we reached SN 893 191 we left the track and headed directly for the summit, around 5k from our starting point.  
After establishing contact with Phil & Ian who had just finished setting up on Fan Nedd,  we quickly set up our station and were on air for 11.40. 
After activating the summit we set off towards Fan Nedd to meet up with Phil & Ian, and activate our second summit of the day.
As it took us around 80 minutes to reach our second summit, Phil had made many contacts and was very glad of a break.  
The equipment was all set up so Andy and I wasted no time getting started.  Conditions were good and we soon made enough contacts for our second activation including one in Anglesey.  
By this time we were all getting a little chilly and we decided to start our descent back to the car for a nice hot cup of tea.
Many thanks to all stations who helped with our activation of Fan Gyhirych and Fan Nedd
