Comments:got to base at the n/e end of the ridge with about 15 pgs and bob little on his hangie most went south in steady drift . bob and one pg pushed forward towards the horseshoe pass getting good climbs so i followed them . bob flew in to the blue hole above there but it looked like sea air to me so i flew towards castle dinas bran . I got low and was think ing of landing behind the castle but got alow save which took me high above the town . I had the hight to push towards corwen but chickened out an d used it to get back to t/o it was as good as any xc but without the trek back
