|Walk:||Hatterall Ridge Offa's Dyke path, Capel-y-Ffin-, Cwarel Y Fan, Bal-Mawr, Cwm Bwchel|
|Start Point:||Llanthony Priory||Grid Reference:|
|Distance:||11.3 miles||Ascent:||2,780 feet|
|Weather:||Very windy with a cold wind on the ridges|
|Comments:||Our first ridge followed the Offa's Dyke path and provided views into England to the east and into Wales to the west. The second ridge was of more interest with an undulating path and a couple of high points. An enjoyable walk with a good final descent.|
