The Dragon’s Back And Waun Fach

This walk ascends the lumps and dips of the Y Grib ridge, known as the Dragon’s Back, from the tip of the tail to the highest point of the Black Mountains, Waun Fach. It takes in the remains of Castell Dinas, the highest castle in Wales and England, which dates from the very earliest days of the Norman conquest of Britain.Virtually all the ascent is in the first half of the walk with a couple of steep but easy sections

The Welsh Three Peaks Challenge

With other providers charging well over £200pp and that without accommodation we think our ‘budget’ Welsh Three Peaks Challenge from £0pp to £65pp is not only great value for money but a fine way to make some new friends and to gain the summits of three iconic Welsh mountains in a single day.
