Exactly what made Wiffs, Rob and Me climb the highest peak of South Wales on the hottest day of the year so far, I do not know, just seemed like a good idea. Those two blamed each other. I was woefully unprepared, I didn't pack anywhere near enough fluids and far too much gear. Well you lives and learns eh?


First we went to Llyn Cwm Llwch and I was already suffering quite badly with blisters. Rob and Wiffs then decided to go "Upstairs" for the sunset but at one point I didn't think I could make it, the blisters were (and still are) killing me. The other two got to the summit of Corn Du and I was on the verge of giving up but there was no way I was going to miss this. The mist was starting to form between the hills below and the sky was turning some crazy colours.


Then the temperature dropped, the wind started whistling and the sweat on our shirts dropped the temperature and fast, Rob was visibly shivering at one point, time for the descent. Worth it? I hope so!
