Plynlimon - the

1122 ft of ascent in 2.97 miles. <br /> <br />This is the standard route from the SE that draws so many many adverse comments. Once you're away from the clutter of the farm, it's actually quite a pleasant walk with changing views. For the activator in a hurry, it's also the quickest route. <br /> <br />Park in the large car park at Eisteddfa Gurig (SN797840), not forgetting to pay your dues at the house by the road. Walk a few yards west up the main road then take the footpath N through the farm yard, ignoring the scary-sounding dogs. Ignore the "All walks" notice in the distance and turn left through the farm gate to follow the true footpath west. From here, follow the gravelled track to approximately SN787848 where a faint path heads NW to a stile at SN783851. (This gravelled track is not shown on the map BTW.) <br /> <br />Cross the stile and follow the fence (now on your right) all the way to the summit, admiring the changing views in all directions. <br /> <br />There is plenty of room for antennas and it is a very good VHF site. <br /> <br />73, Richard
