Rhigos Mountain

IMG_20160730_143952-01

Climb in a sentence. A real treat, emerging from an innocuous dual carriageway near Hirwaun which keeps unfolding ahead, keeping the summit out of sight until the final moments after negotiating the final couple of alpine switchbacks.

View rating. 9/10. There’s a bit of everything from the summit, with a dramatic rocky face leading to a lake and then the switchback bends tumbling to the valley floor below, pretty special.

Difficulty rating. 7/10
