I was standing at the top of the Old Bristol Road, trying to find the well-hidden footpath across to the A39 and the Penn Hill TV mast a kilometre or so away. I was wondering why the GPS was failing to give me a grid reference, having forgotten the ambient RF blizzard emanating from the mast.
I've been meaning for a while to ascend the Ebbor Gorge. It gets steep and Clare has backed off previously so we have abandoned. But today I was reassured that it doesn't ever get much more steep than the pix show below.
Learnings from today. Get some soft insoles for the boots! I was out for four hours and boy, do my toes know it! The Brecon Beacons beckon for next week.
