 With Dave. About 5C, calm in the valleys, very windy on the tops (I've never had such a cold back of head before). The wind pushed us up the first climb which was a great help. Snow patches in places on the top. The Y Das decsent has been repaired but is still good with some interesting bits but the wind was distracting. The second major climb was a push, into the wind, but not really too bad. The drag along the top (blaen-yr-henbant) after the long road section was hard work, soft and very slippy in places, with more snow.

The major descent down through the woods was absolutely brilliant! Rocky, dark, wet, muddy, steepish, it was everything you want. The very final bit of singletrack down to the road was very good too! Parking at the car pack at the bottom of the descent was a good idea too - long first climb but what a great finish back to the carpark.
