Route
Cp at Blaen-y-Cwm (the upper cp in the Mynydd Du forest) Limber up for spring with an epic sweep of the the Black Mountains. A tough start over Chwarel y Fan into the Vale of Ewyas and then over Offa's Dyke into the Ochon Valley. Up the Catsback to Black Hill and then a long sweep over the tops to Hay Bluff, Twmpa, Rhos Dirion, Waun Fach, and Pen Cerrig Calch, across to Pen Twyn Mawr and finish on Pen y Gadair Fawr
General Notes
A very tough walk that will finish in the dark, full winter gear please. This will be a demanding walk with significant ascent. This route has a number of escape options, the most obvious being a descent down the Grwyne Fawr valley back to the start - about 20 miles circular. You are welcome to join the walk for part of the way and navigate your own way back. Map: Explorer OL13
