Dangerous In Wet Conditions
by Aidy  10 Apr 2016
I set out to take roughly the same route as track 3114, but heeding Captain Vertigo's warning that the descent of Bingorms could be tricky in wet conditions, I decided to go anti-clockwise around the track. This would mean I would be ascending the steep side of Bingorms rather than descending, which I thought would be safer. I was glad I did, and even going up was worrying in places, with stretches of exposed rock interspersed with patches of grass and moss that gave way beneath feet and hands (hands were required at several points). It really would be dangerous coming down here in wet conditions. Eventually, it levelled out to a rocky top, and the good views I had had all the way up, were now more fully appreciated as I relaxed on ground that wasn't practically a vertical bog.
