Moel y Gamelin



Fourth time lucky.
An early start and the roads are snow and ice free, the first time there was too much snow, the second time too much ice and fog, third time crashed the car, so it was looking good for a bit of success.
I parked on the horseshoe pass itself, and walked along the south side of Moel y faen and then up to Gribin Oernant, then I was on the main path along the Llantisilio mountains.
It should have been a good path, but it gets really steep sometimes, and in the icey conditions quite dangerous, along the path were mini glaciers angled at forty five degrees on the mountain sides, now that was really quite dangerous.
The barrow at the top is big, and has big views across more than half of north wales, I stood on top and gazed out at the world as the freezing wind gusted into my face taking out a filling in the process ( not really) I laughed at the absurdity of it all, here I was, on the edge of existence, the meaning of life perhaps just round the next corner, then in a few short hours I would be at school picking up the kids, and the whole morning will be just a memory,
fading like tears in the rain.
Untill the next time.
