'Summited' is ironic, of course. The whole hill is only 1,375 feet. But I am somewhat elderly these days. And it's still quite steep this way up too, though far shorter a route.
Evidence of the wildfire that raged on Twmbarlwm (and the surrounding hills) during the summer heatwave was clearly visible, both as we climbed and at the top.

It was a very different sight from early May when we made our first climb.
Here's a couple of before and after photos.
We decided to walk the bounds of the Iron Age hill fort on the summit.
The views were still beautiful, although a lot of young trees have been lost.
Clearly some wildlife survived, though.
Looking over to the River Severn ...
