During a long weekend in Wales with J, Shaky & Smithy. A sunny but breezy day. Paid the £5 at Eisteddfa Gurig into what amounted to an honesty bucket after debating whether to park in a layby further down the hill. Followed the E RoW to the summit of Pen Pumlumon Fawr for a good view, then onwards over the E top to Pen Pumlumon Arwystli. Then reversed the tops checking out the source of the Wye & descended the W RoW. I nipped out & back to Y Garn which is a nice top before cathcing the others up. Saturday night entertainment in Rhayader ensued...NotReallyABagger29/09/2018
