27th– 18th January 2023 Black Mountain Trip
Alan, Claire, Ann, Gary, Julie, Gerry, Mark, Marion, Trudi, Martin, Maggie.
This was our second trip to Tylau Lodge bunkhouse, which is just outside Hay on Wye on the edge of the Black Mountains. We enjoyed the lovely open plan living area with great views and the log fire, it’s definitely a comfy sofa trip!
On Saturday we started at the car park by Dragons Back and walked up to Y Grib, onto Lords Hereford Knob (713m) and back to the Bunkhouse (about 11 miles).
The day finished with a great meal including a sausage chilli and an apple and mincemeat roll, followed by a quiz and Red Handed.
On Sunday we set off to do the ridge, Mynydd Troed (609m) which is to the west of Dragons Back. Although we headed into the cloud we were rewarded with great views when it cleared. We then split into two with some heading back to the car park and others ascending up to Mynydd Llangorse (508m).
Yet another great weekend, we will be back!
