A frightening descent on a Welsh Mountain Sunday May 17 Part 1

Moel Famau lies close to the North Wales coast and rises almost 2000 ft, a clear landmark for miles.  As such it is a very obvious target for hikers and cyclists alike, when weather permits.  Which it often doesn’t !

But the descent was a lot more terrifying than the ascent.  Charlie himself states that it is not descent for the nervous person.  A path just two feet in width, boulderstrewn and sloping to the right along the very edge of a 150 ft drop.  Charlie says “The grass was slippery, the gradient easy but the heart thumps” as they bounced down the mountain.
