Oh Joy, clear skies and no wind set us up for a great walk in the Black Mountains for this late October ramble. A group of eight Scouts from Congresbury, Blagdon and Winscombe set off from Crickhowell heading up towards Table Mountain, a Neolithic encampment looking over the Usk valley.
James and William have explored the area on previous trips and it was good to welcome Arthur, Bede, Danial, Marta, Wojtec and Bartec to this hillwalking group. Neville Roberts from the Avon Scout Hill Walking section came along to support the event.
We followed the ridge north for 15 Km, taking in a couple of triangulation points before heading down to the valley at Castell Dinas where we met the minibus for cocoa and chocolate. Thanks to Dave Miles for driving the bus and enabling us to do this linear walk.
