With Craig, Dave and Nick. A cold wet ride, and the final descent was shut so had to ride back down the fire road, not the best

The Ultimate Climachx? - it includes most of the singletrack from the original route, all the 'Harder' descents, and three further descents (the final one being right at the end of Tony the Tiger - VERY steep - unridable??). A good 20 miler, but perhaps not quite a full days ride - join it up with Cadair for a great day out?

An alternative to the official Climachx route which adds in a several new descents. We were trying to do the Climachx Harder route but got mixed up halfway round. I think at point 5 in the description (after Va-va-voom) we did tun off the climachx trail but did a 180 u-turn and missed the 'turn left immediately' part and we actually went down where we should have been coming up a few minutes later... we know for next time!

A great night ride with Craig, Dave and Gareth - after doing the Pink Heifer at Coed Y Brenin earlier in the day

With Craig, Dave and Leon. Extremely wet ride, onlt rained perhaps not even half the time, but the amount of puddles, and most of them deep, meant our legs and feet were completely soaking. Cold too at 4-5C. Good fun though, great descents on the harder as usual, and great final descent, better the second time for some reason, really quite dark in the woods so needed the helmet torchs we had on.

The top half of the trail has been felled, completely open and bare of trees, but thankfully the trail hasnt suffered at all

(Height data added by Topofusion from DEM as the Edge 305 gps recorded some pretty poor data.)

We did this after doing the Climachx Harder route in the morning. Note that the first singletrack on the route was closed and we got diverted up a fireroad, so this isnt the full Climachx route.

We got the route right this time, and the two extra descents (we missed last time we tried the 'harder' route due to tricky navigation) were brilliant!
