"It is thought to be the inspiration for "Ffynnon Garw", the fictional mountain (or hill) featured in the book, and later, film, The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain by Christopher Monger." (Direct quote from Wikipedia.)
We are gradually becoming 'gear freaks'. This week was the first outing for Lynne's new high-wicking top (Description: actively wicks moisture away from the skin, keeping you dry and comfortable).
Stamina increases quickly - we were surprised that we scrambled up to the top at a good speed without feeling needing to rest.
Excited to see that some snow still remained on the highest mountain in South Wales.
Pen-y-fan is classed as a Marilyn.There are 158 in Wales.
I've never enjoyed lunch as much - hill-walking makes you hungry. Even cereal bars taste good at altitude! ;-)
We are Lynne and Andrew from Single Steps Learning. Our love of learning and exploring has inspired us to take up 'hill-walking'. We hope to progress from novice to expert! This is our journey.
