Comments:On the point of giving up to see if Llangollen was any better, when some buzzards persuaded me to have one more try. Flew along ridge to where Stephen was climbing, and rocketted up from there. Flew with Stephen to Wrexham, then he glided off East, which looked too much like sea-breeze territory for me.After a great climb north of Chirk, I think the breeze got me anyway. I'll head for the hills next time ...
