Caer Caradoc

Thursday 12 June 2014. I met Bea at Church Stretton today for the last walk of her short break with me. We decided on a 6.7 mile route with 1,500ft of ascent which would take us to the top of Caer Caradoc.

The going was easy until we arrived at the foot of Caer Caradoc when the hard work began. We climbed, almost straight up, for almost 500ft to Three Finger Rock after which there was a short level section before a final climb of 350ft to the top.

There were great views from the top as we looked back towards Church Stretton and north towards The Lawler and The Wrekin.

The descent from Caer Caradoc was almost as steep as the ascent after which we followed a contouring path around its side to our break for lunch looking up towards the summit.

Caer Caradoc was in view for much of our return to Church Stretton.
