Exactly the same format and course as previous years. We aim to record times at the blockhouse so you'll be able to compare ascent/descent times with your friends.

The route is partially marked with yellow flags and white/red hazard tape. Black and white map supplied. It is essential that you follow the marked route through the fields before the main fell - ie keep to the footpath and over the stiles.

2017. In the above photo you can make out Ben Mitchell (1st) on his way back down the hill (left) whilst the majority are winding their way up the steep north face. Ben was only 7 seconds off the course record held by Mark Palmer. 1st lady Megan Carter-Davies was also just 12 seconds off Helen Brown's record for the route.

The photo to the left shows Paul Murrin 2nd, with Abergavenny below and The Skirrid in the distance.
