View to Sugar Loaf, GW/SW-012

View to Ysgryd Fawr, GW/SW-016
I squeezed this one in on the way home from Waun Fach. It's only a 15 minute drive to the parking spot where only one other car was parked. I followed the boardwalks through the nature reserve and then a few switchbacks onto a bridleway, eventually picking up a path towards the summit. With Just under a mile walk this was a lot easier than Waun Fach, although my legs knew that were now into double figure miles. The summit was covered with prickly gorse bushes but with some gaps to find a place to park mysef. A small tree made an excellent pole support so setup time was rapid. There were splendid views in the late afternoon sunshine, with Sugar Loaf- GW/SW-011, Ysgyrd Fawr - GW/SW-016, Garway Hill - G/WB-016 and May Hill - G/WB-019 clearly visible. I Didn't hang around on this one and as soon as there was a break in callers I switched band. All told I worked 27 QSOs, 17 DXCC and one S2S with Rich, G3CWI/p on G/NP-004.
