Blorenge 2008

The other side.

I used to live within sight of the west side of this mountain, but for some reason never made it to the east side, except to drive past on the road to Abergavenny. Time to fix that.

The mountain is best known for its concave north face, that looks a little like a cleavage, or a pair of buttocks, depending on your perspective. The west and south are underlain by parts of the Ogof Draenen cave system. The southeast is edged by the southern spur of the Brecon Beacons national park, which strangely neglects to include the ridge to the south. The northeast has a feature known as the Punchbowl, which is the target for this trip.
