This is quite a strenuous walk, but very rewarding. There are some of the best viewpoints of the Black Mountains on this walk and at Waypoint 4 the views stretch right up to Mid-Wales and across to the Brecon Beacons and towards Camarthen Fan. The steepest climb is the last pull up to Pen Allt Mawr, but the views from the ridge, in both directions, are unbelievable.

Can't endorse Piers words strongly enough! Especially in the hills when visibility can be problematical please ALWAYS take a map and compass (or GPS) and make sure you know how to use them. Both Walkingworld and GPS Training run courses to help you (see the shop or this article: Go higher and wilder!) specifically for these circumstances.

Please - make sure you know what you're doing before walking in this area in bad weather. I did this walk on Sunday in almost zero visibility. Halfway around I came across a couple, totally lost with a map they couldn't read and no compass! I escorted them down to Table Mountain and steered them (in much improved visibility) towards Crickhowell. I don't know what they'd have done if someone hadn't have turned up. Great walk though. I'll have to do it in better visibility one day and enjoy the views.
