Another day forecast as worth getting up higher. The target today was the Sugar Loaf a ‘proper” looking mountain as a child may draw.
We parked at the car park near spot height 234 and then walked uphill and then took a path leading south east into the woods above the Afon Cibi.
At Sunny Hill we turned uphill heading onto the ridge of Deri. There were fine views of the Sugar loaf and surroundings.
A lovely wide grass path led us to a northern route up onto the top of Sugar Loaf. Part of the route was icy but once in the sun the grass reappeared.
We soon reached the top and took in the views.
The trig point has a plaque mentioning the local mountain rescue team and its members who have passed on.
It was too cold to have lunch on the top but a short drop down found us a sheltered spot. After the break we headed down the south east side towards High Beeches and back to the car.
