After several weeks out due to injury problems it was good to get back on some larger hills. Last time I was above the 600m contour (well even the 300m contour!) was back on Friday 13th of March in Perthshire.

Anyway, my unhappy descent of Ben Chonzie was forgotten today on a fine sunny day above New Radnor. I suppose you could say these are a pretty unremarkable trio of hills but I enjoyed some fine views from up top, all the way south to the Brecon Beacons (with the distinctive summit of Pen y Fan clearly visible in the far distance).

Above all it was good to complete this route pain free. Hopefully a good omen for the first week in June in Kintail. Pictures and gpx to follow.

Glad to hear you're back at it, Riverman. I picked up those 3 Hewitts in mid-2013. The next day I was on Drygarn Fawr and Gorllwyn, the same day some SAS guys died from heat exhaustion a wee bit South in the Brecon Beacons.

Mid-Wales is somewhat overlooked and under-appreciated for its peaks, but on a good day you can see a long distance away.

Good luck in Kintail.

It's always so good to get back out there after an injury, and better still to do it with no repercussions. Glad you're back out there Riverman, I'll be watching for the pics and report :wave:

Now with GPX. Might be a while til I get the photos up although by then I hope I'll have some nice shots from Kintail. Weather next week doesn't look too pretty though!
