Two days activating in Wales - April 2016 - Great Rhos GW/MW-002

After leaving SW-035 Myarth we motored in both our cars to
Boggy moorland near the summit of Great Rhos
a cafe at Crossgates roundabout where we used the facilities and had a cup of tea. My car was left there and we continued to the start of the walk for Great Rhos, which we tackled from the north side by following the GPX track I took from the SMP provided by Gerald MW0WML.  We parked on the grass triangle at SO 173672 and set off along the bridleway for the hour it took to reach the highest point on Great Rhos, 660m above sea level. This was a pleasant walk, mainly on forest tracks until we reached the intake fence around 500m from the summit trig point where we entered boggy moorland. We were able to qualify the summit on VHF this time, and recorded 8 contacts each, which was pretty good for the middle of the day in the middle of the week. 
Heading back to the car and on to our next activation - Beacon Hill GW/MW-009
