Changes to two walks

Sunday 17 September
A reminder that providing the weather looks OK (!), the walk Robin will be doing this Sunday is the walk originally planned for Sunday 10th September – a ridge walk in the Black Mountains to Rhos Dirion, over to Twmpa, down to Capel y Ffin, and then back up and over to Mynydd Du. This is 12 miles with nearly 3000 ft ascent and graded Strenuous… But if the weather cooperates, there will be outstanding views!
