A perfect bivvy spot

Here’s a picture of a favourite bivvy spot of mine in the Black Mountains. I cant tell you where because its mine you understand.  Its just off the summit of a distinctive hilltop looking towards The Sugar Loaf so work it out if you can. Its a perfect spot looking towards the west and glorious sunsets. That reminds me, I must get out and revisit that spot soon….

    Just looked it up on Memory Map. Nice and thanks.

  5. Thanks for this… a reminder, if needed, that it’s been far too long since I’ve been out… properly.

    One of the Welsh Marilyns I’ve not yet climbed, looks great. Isn’t it a rather popular hill for a camp though?.

      Hi Geoff.

      Well, it is and it isnt if you know what I mean. Its not used as a camping spot so much because its too “sharp” a ridge for regular camping. It is however a great bivvy spot. Also it is still a reasonable walk to get to and that once you go past early evening you tend to have it to yourself

      I do have other good bivvy spots around that area that are much more remote though… 😉
