Wednesday 20th February 2019 - Moel Gyw GW/NW-053, Foel Fenlli GW/NW-051, Moel Famau GW/NW-044, Penycloddiau GW/NW-054, Mynydd y Cwm GW/NW-076 & Hope Mountain GW/NW-062

I was well ahead of schedule, and thoughts began to turn to squeezing in a sixth activation for the day.  First though, the fifth Clwydian needed to be negotiated. Mynydd y Cwm GW/NW-076 is very easy though, with just a short and mainly level track and path walk around into the woods, then a simple path up and easy gradient to the summit and memorial.

I wondered if I might pay the price on this one, for my arrogance in carrying up nothing more than a handie with rubber duck.  The summit is wooded!  Anyway, no problem.  Five QSOs coming in a ten minute operating session, before reversing the route back to the car. 

I had completed the Clwydians before 1530z - probably at least two hours earlier than my previous best!  There was definitely time to bag Hope Mountain GW/NW-062 before heading home.
