A scheduled trip to Swansea, to pick up my daughter from University, gave me the opportunity to detour slightly off route and pick up the easy summit of Craig y Llyn. Being within the winter bonus meant it was worth 7 points!
A very wet drive ensued to the viewing point car park, and it was still wet and miserable as I set off for the short walk to the summit.

This is one of the easiest summits in South Wales, and certainly the easiest to pickup 7 points. The ascent is a mere 450' over a distance 0.75miles of easy track.
By the time I'd reached the trig point and set up, the blue skies started to drift in from the west and it turned out to be a dry, although cold, activation.
As no one was around, I set up (as usual) on the trig point. This one usefully has the top plate missing which allows a quick pole set up.

Nice to have Stateside chasers back in the log after a bit of an absence over the summer months.
Thanks to K4DY, K4MF, KG3W and N1GB for the contacts from across the pond, and the solitary S2S with Heinz, HB9BCB/p on HB/BE-156, which, knowing Heinz, was probably also an ATS4 - ATS4 contact :-)
