GW/SW-002

Summit Information for GW/SW-002
Waun Fach - 811m, 8 points
Association: Wales  Region: South Wales   
Latitude: 51 57 46 N, Longitude: 3 8 38 W
Grid Reference: SO 215300, QTH Locator: IO81KX 
Today's Sunrise: 07:16 UTC, Today's Sunset: 17:36 UTC 





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.
