The car park itself was fairly high up, but because the hiking route took us close to Abergavenny, we really did hike the entire distance up to the top. So we don't feel like we cheated by parking half way up!
Even the view from the car park was worthwhile.

We are headed up here!

Here's a 51 second video taken from the top. You can hear how windy it was if you turn your volume up to listen to my commentary!
We found a bit of a sheltered spot to have some lunch.

Nice view of the city of Abergavenny, Wales.
It was a good hike, and on a beautiful day! Took us just over three hours, including a half hour or so break for lunch.
Helen and Tony are heading back home today, so it's just us and Harvey the dog for the next week or so until Helen and Rick arrive back from their trip to British Columbia. Then another couple of days after that we will be in Iceland for five days, and then to Halifax to visit our daughter and her family. Then to Ottawa and area for a few days and then driving to Mexico! So we've got a week to relax, and then it's going to be a busy October!!!
