Twyn y Garth

Had a nice time walking up Twyn y Garth (http://www.castles99.ukprint.com/Essays/twynygarth.html) (http://www.gatehouse-gazetteer.info/Welshsites/916.html). Took the mountain bikes over to the base and then climbed up the steep side. There’s a false summit (from this direction) which makes you think it’s an easy climb to the top; only for you then to discover the real top…except it isn’t! It’s just a curved ridge. But you know it really is the top when you see the gun (http://www.geograph.ie/photo/428127).

It was noticeably colder at the top (325m) then down in the bottom of the valley (125m). We could see plenty of snowy hills around us and snow on the top of the hill we were on even though it doesn’t show up from the bottom.

They had fun eating the supplies they brought with them…Rainbow Drops…real mountain food.

Even though the hill is only 325m we were still higher than one of the planes that regular flies down the valley.

When we got back we had to clean the bikes off, even for such a short trip we managed to get pretty muddy.
