I fancied Caer Caradoc.  No idea why. It was a fair drive from the digs in West Bromwich, but still possibly the closest as-yet unactivated summit in 2019.  It was hammering it down with rain but I went anyway.  The initial climb up a narrow steep valley was more cascading waterfall than footpath.  I made the top in good time, and, inexplicably, enjoyed it.

Five QSOs on 2m FM with the handle.  Then a tricky descent back down the waterfall!  Went to the pub opposite the theatre for dinner with the band.
