    This is a trip I did on Penyfal, to give it it's proper name a few years back, might look familiar to you Stephen.

    In actual fact, the first photo was taken from Ysgyryd Fawr looking at the "sugarloaf."

    I think that the Sugar Loaf is a vastly underated "mountain" (ok its just under 2000ft). its one of these summits that you can make as easy or as difficult as you like and can easily be done without having to have a car since Abergavenny train station is only a few miles away. There is also a very decent campsite a few miles away (Pysgodlyn). For those that really dont want to break sweat there is even a car park half way up. the views are great and also its one that kids can attempt relatively easilyas an introduction to walking.
