Long Mynd Valleys little sod

­(Not strictly a qualifier this one as it can be avoided by most routes off Yearlet in the final throes of the Valleys race). Anyway it’s that bugger of a mole hill that climbs a good 30’ from the mini reservoir at the bottom of Townbrook Hollow towards the Burway road crossing. Most humans have had enough of this race by then so this Smidgeon of a climb can be almost more than I can bear at that point.
