Comments:Following Stuart L, Keith and Simon's departure across the Vale, Phil, Steve T and I caught the next decent cycle and departed. Each thermal seemed hard to really core even when well up towards cloudbase and we 3 spread out looking for the continuing lift. Phil headed off to the south of Denbigh while Steve and I worked and lost and refound thermals. Steve and I parted company over Denbigh quarry and I drifted on past Henllan finally gliding to the ground in a narrow valley cutting through high ground near Foel Fodiar. First car stopped for me after barely a minute on the road and would take me to Afonwen -no problem This Brian also picked up a tired Keith in Bodfari and took us both to the car park. What a star!
