- Anyone know what state Afan is in at the moment?
Where is that greeble?
It is before the start, right at the start where you are supposed to walk your bikes down the gravel track, just after going under the road/bridge. It wasn’t open last weekend and isn’t very long, but a lot safer for walkers n bikers now.
Graveyard section of the Wall was closed last weekend.
Glyncorrwg Cafe is back though! All the Lasagne was gone by the time we finished, but the Chilli was bloody lovely!Posted 6 years agorondo101Member
Did W2 last friday. The last section of Graveyard was closed (the bit after the Guesthouse) for logging, with a diversion around it. They also seem to have changed the tricky rocky section in the middle of Graveyard, putting an easy line down to the left, although the right line isn’t particularly taxing any more.
There was a small section of Energy on whites that looked like it was in the middle of being rebuilt (the steepish climb up next to the stream after the exposed rocky section that had been badly eroded). And signs were up that work was taking place on Darkside, although I didn’t see any sign of this.
And we were stopped briefly on the fireroad connecting the end of the Wall with the beginning of the climb whilst trees were being felled on the hillside, although it was all of 2 minutes.Posted 6 years agodavid jeyMember
Speaking as a big mincing jey, I was quite pleased when I found they’d done that as I never clean the bloomin thing 😉 although at the time (only been through there once so not sure) I thought they’d left the original line for those who want it and basically put a (long, straight) chicken line in….?
OP: bits and bobs closed everywhere but no dramas at the mo. In 6-8 weeks time? Who knows….Posted 6 years agoPawsy_BearSubscriber
+1 the old grave yard is still there you just need to take the right line 😉
+1 for Glyncorrwg cafe. I was there last Sunday when a guy ordered food then realized he lost his wallet on the trail (from his back pocket of cycling top (no comment)). They gave him his food free. Nice to see genuine good service. I find the foods great and plenty of it.
Like the new bit but always go from GlyncorrwgPosted 6 years agocycl1ngjbMember
Was also at Glyncorrwg last weekend & oddly enough in the cafe the same time as the guy who lost his wallet!
Did a full loop of Whites including a Black run followed by a climb back up to the top of Whites, another Black run then round on the fireroad to the Skyline descent.
All open & not as wet as I expected given the rain that fell in the preceeding days. Signs indicated that several sections of Skyline were shut.
Also heard that the Skyline will remain open for about a year beyond the previous closing date due to delays with the wind farm.Posted 6 years ago
