SOTA GW/NW-055 Foel Offwrm - June 2021

After the morning activation of GW/NW-074 I drove across to the other side of Dolgellau to the carpark (with toilets) at Coed y Groes that serves the famous and popular Precipice Walk, grid reference SH745211. A couple of picnic tables are also provided by the Snowdonia National Park and this was where we had our lunch.

We crossed the C class road and entered the wood which is where the waymarked path up to GW/NW-055 starts. It was a shade under one mile with 600 feet ascent to reach the summit in 35 minutes: ©Crown copyright 2021 Ordnance Survey. Media 018/21

From the six summits activated in the week this was the only summit that gave us an established footpath right to the summit, and I can truly recommend it as a most enjoyable summit with outstanding views to the surrounding summits and westwards out into the Mawdach Estuary:

XYL Judy continued reading her novel, leaving me to setting up and activating. Operation over four bands provided me just 18 contacts - this was the only one out of six summits in the week where we were visited by a couple of walkers. Paul DL/HB9DST/P was worked on 40m CW on DM/BW-085 for summit to summit.
