GW/SW-013


Summit Information for GW/SW-013
Tor y Foel - 551m, 2 points
Association: Wales  Region: South Wales   
Latitude: 51 52 1 N, Longitude: 3 17 12 W
Grid Reference: SO 115195, QTH Locator: IO81IU 



The start point at SO 108 187 has a wonderful view over Talabont Reservoir and a small picknick area that wouldn't look out of place in a Flintstones movie.  The parking is very limited, just room for 2 or 3 cars.
From here its just under a kilometer up the well established path with around 120m of accent to the summit. 
The grass covered summit is fairly flat with plenty of room for antennas.  Unfortunately there is no shelter of any kind and with snow on the ground, and a biting north wind, it wasn't the most comfortable of activations.
Despite being surrounded by some of the highest mountains in the region, I found it to be surprisingly good for VHF
