Yes @robjh, that is the road. I'm actually a little bit higher - if you go back to streetview, you'll find that on the cyclist's right there's another switchback and soon after that a car park which could be where I'd stopped. As many will know, there are three routes to this summit, and a while ago I planned out this route which includes all three ascents (the "55" marks where my photograph was taken): Apparently, some of the inter-valley roads in South Wales, including this one and also the Rhigos, north of Treherbert on the map above, were built by miners who would otherwise have been unemployed during the depression in the 1930s. Ironically, it's the roads that have become their permanent legacy. The are wonderful roads. I hope you have another good one. Edit: actually I a little further along from the car park. You can find the exact spot by lining up the track which the car is about to pass.
