A Dragon and a Castle

Brecon Beacons, Wales

I was delighted to discover Y Grib, also known as the Dragon's Back, in the Black Mountains. I first noticed this ridge while taking photos from the top of its neighbouring peak, Mynydd Troed, but it wasn't until several years later I decided to climb it. While it may look warm bathed in the glow of sunset, it was far from it as wind raced up the ridge.
