The view on the right is of the village of Beddgelert in Snowdonia, Wales taken from near the postion I am, precariously on the left.
We think the mountain in the distance is Moel Siabod – a favourite I used to go with Bryan Stevens from Queens Park High School with Duke of Edinburgh students in training. I am very pleased with myself. With the help of John Marchant I climbed over 2,500 feet into the sky in search of the summit of Moel Hebog near Beddgelert in Snowdonia. There is nothing as exhilirating as pushing my unfit body to its limits and standing at the top of a mountain. Excellent. My friend, John, took this photograph of a particularly tricky bit – hence the redness of my face all aglow with the excitement! John tells me the climb was a grade 3 and the edge we ascended in this photo was Reddllen Buttress. Yeay!
