Wales & Borders - October 2013 Trip - Day Two: 4. Carneddau MW-023

Another 30 mins driving time after leaving Gwaunceste and we arrived at Tynyllidiart, marked by a sharp bend on the lane to the north west corner of the access land, which leads through a gate to the summit of MW-023 Carneddau. There was just room to squeeze Geoff's Scooby into the hedge by the gate.

This really was an outstanding short walk (20 mins) around the side of the hill. Good dry land with some sparse heather - easy walking. The summit was featureless but the all round views were exceptional.

Without any support for my short fishing pole we fashioned one ourselves with our walking poles and some rope. Only six contacts were completed in the 20 minutes we stayed and once again Don G0RQL was logged - over a distance of 157 Km (98 m) this time. We also completed a summit to summit contact with my good friend Jack GW4COX/P on SW-001 Pen-y-Fan.
