I recon that's Crickhowell in the foreground with Table Mountain half way up on the right, so Pen Cerrig-Calch? Pen Allt Mawr in the background and (with the aid of an OS map and your clue) taken from gilwern Hill?

Not quite as sharp as Smartcooky's stunner, but a bit closer to homeand probably easier... what are the two mini classics hiding in the mist?

Chrome & Parkhouse it is - one of my favourite walks when taking in High Wheeldon as well.

Ok, This was the view when I stayed the night here, but where is here?

BTW: Nice Broken Spectre Boneychest. . I managed to catch one up on Carnedd Llewelyn last year it even made me look Holy for a few seconds.

Took a while 'cos I thought it was a view towards the Scafells but couldn't think where from, but now I think it's a view of the Nantlle Ridge and Snowdon from Cnicht?
