Have fun, you'll love it even if the weather's rubbish! Wall is red grade but not hard. Is the whole of whites open now?

Had a proper look at the maps of the trails at coed. Thankyou to that lovely lady standing in front/resting her bike on the post we did not turn left to follow the MBR trail. So instead of 18K we did 31K (+ manitor route). Good ride and weekend and already thinking of going back to wales.

Thanks everyone

Heres the pics ladys..

me and Jim did the whites level Black route at Afan before the others arrived, was a long climb up into the clouds and was drizziling a bit which only added to the atmosphere up there, its all rock and the water was running all the way day from the top so was like riding a long up hill stream. the black run was pretty extreme and you could easy come a cropper up there as is mostly fast berms that spiral down then in to almost vertical drops without warning which are covered with rock ledges all over the show!

was the best camp site ever, they drive you to the pub in there range Rover sport and then the Chef at the pub drives you home again for free. The Chef was mental and we were doing 80mph in the back of his transit on the way home down the dark lanes haha.

next morning Dazzer was sneaking a sheep out in his sleeping bag!

us all at the top after the most gruelling climb ive done, was around 4000 feet winding around the mountain, Some of us never walked (we know who we are :)) the views were breath taking and the down hill runs were amazing and we all rode better and faster than we ever new we had in us.
