Whytes is good if you do that but half a days ride. W2 is whytes and the wall together is a big ride.

Whites,wall,zig zag,alpha,& a couple more mad mad trails
Another epic day in Afan weather has been perfect,no rain no wind
All in all a great day but for the first timer it's been very very hard going on the legs
Off to green lanterns for a monster T bone

Energy,goodwood,darkside 3 great runs, goodwood wood section closed for safey reasons (doh!!), darkside epic decent,energy what a fantastic run, made the whole trip well worth it.....
Big up to all fellas who put up with me moaning about the ascent (not the best climber),great lads,great views,great descents,great 22oz T bone.
All in all a great 3 days in wales.
Cheers.....
