Its rare for me not to complete a walk, but that's exactly what happened on Saturday afternoon.
One of my local favourites, is to make directly for Bwlch Y Rhiwgyr, and then follow the ridge and famous Great Wall of Wales as far as Diffwys.

This was my plan, but the windchill and severity of the cold against my face, resulted in a detour, which meant i turned back having only managed roughly five or so miles.

Living on the coast, its not that often that severe windchill is a issue, but i recon the temperature was only about 3C out of the wind, and in the teeth of the wind, it was very painful, and i bet i would have suffered severe wind burn as well.

A real shame, as the views were impressive.
