The horse barely moved - even when I opened the gate! Note also the sheep having an afternoon nap. The route from the south to the summit of Ysgyryd Fawr is more popular, but climbing from the north side is steeper and more of a test (especially coming near the end of the popular Abergavenny Three Peaks Challenge held every March, when walkers will already have climbed the Blorenge and the Sugarloaf, and covered a distance of about fifteen miles).
