SOTA road trip, Day 1 - Saturday 1st August 2020
From Y Golfa GW/NW-061, it was another short drive as I "mopped up" all the Welshpool one-pointers - except for the notorious Upper Park-Crown Wood GW/MW-032 of course! My satnav wanted to route me down a narrow lane that was temporarily closed, but I forked left and looped around the hill, keeping it to my right. I found the usual parking spot on a small grass verge between two gates, then hunted in the hedge for the metre or so of fence where the barbs of the barbed wire are absent. This is actually the official start of a public footpath!
I climbed steeply up the grassy slope towards the summit. The summit area was crowded with cattle, but fortunately they all decided to run away when they saw me approaching! I set up the 17m GP and made a quick sextet of QSOs on CW before descending back to the car. It was back into England for the fourth summit of the day - Heath Mynd G/WB-007.
