Comments:Even better climb off Moel Morfydd together with Roger and Clive. Clive stuck to the Llantysilio ridge, while Roger and I stuck with the one wide and powerful (max 1260ft/min) thermal to airspace base. Needed bigears to stay below it. Having left that lift never had more than a brief blip and glided over the grid pylons to land by Nercwys Hall.
