Most people are probably just arriving home from a night in Cardiff at 4am but this weekend that's the time I was in fact waking up. For weeks I had wanted to see sunrise from Sugar Loaf so when we seen that the weather was looking promising we packed up our kit, put on several layers and headed to the mountain.
Now, I've never hiked in the dark and it was quite a challenge especially when I have never walked up Sugar Loaf before. We made it up in about an hour after stopping a few times to check on our map that we were actually on a path!
Eventually, we made it to the top where we were greeted with a 15 minute snow storm before we rested ourselves in a small cul de sac and watched the magnificent sunrise. Without a doubt it was definitely worth it & at least we were kitted up with all the gear (just not much idea!).
