The rough track runs from the car park at SN252285 up to Grwyne Fawr Reservoir, (about 3 kilometers)
The view from the top of the dam,
Its a long way down!
The cloud base was at 600m for most of the day, but lifted on the way down when I took this shot of the reservoir.
Still a little snow hanging about in the hollows from the previous week
The walk from the reservoir up towards the summit gets a little steeper, taking around 45 minutes. Its very boggy in places and there are many streams running below the surface. The summit itself is also very boggy and I found it hard to find a suitable spot to set up. There is plenty of room for any antennas you may have but on this occasion I just put up my 60m inverted V and a slim jim for 2m.
