And on the first Sunday of the New Year the walking baton was handed to Graham and he led a very enjoyable wander over the amazing small mountain called Cribarth at the the top end of the Swansea Valley.
Despite the early start, it was still dark when we gathered at the car park of the Brecon Beacons National Park visitor centre, we had a large group of keen walkers turn up for our megaliths and roman road and Iron Age solstice sunrise walk.
It was a challenge day, the Holy Loaf Challenge! After walking the Sugar Loaf and then The Skirrid as shorter walks over the past few weeks Andy had planned in a mega challenge day that was 12.5 miles long and included 1000metres of ascent… think of snowdon but double the distance…
David was out on a very wet and miserable looking morning and so had some difficult navigation to, erm, navigate, to find the object of desire for this walk, the crashed WW2 Wellington Bomber in the West of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
We are back in the area this coming weekend for the Skirrid and then the Holy Loaf Challenge Walk. These are both very nearly full although there might be cancellations so do look out for last minute spots.
