Thursday 30th December 2021 - Brown Clee Hill G/WB-002, Titterstone Clee Hill G/WB-004, Long Mynd-Pole Bank G/WB-005, Stiperstones G/WB-003, Corndon Hill GW/MW-013 & Gyrn Moelfre GW/NW-049
I think I was getting tired because both the drive from the previous summit, and the walk up the hill, both seemed to take a lot longer than they should. I needed to don the headtorch for the final part of the ascent. Incredibly windy at the summit and quite difficult to operate. I was acutely aware of the danger of the wind snatching the paper logbook from my right hand and launching it on a flight never to be seen again, with all my as-yet unsubmitted logs from ten recent activations!
The visibility closed right in with thick damp mist, and I managed to lose the path on the first part of the descent. Once in the car, I set off home to Macclesfield. Fatigue caught up with me near Whitchurch, and I pulled into a lay-by, reclined my driverís seat, grabbed my pillow and set my alarm for an 8 minute power nap. I fell almost immediately to sleep, and when I awoke felt refreshed, and I was able to complete the drive back to Macclesfield feeling alert. A 30 point SOTA day.
