David ThomasI have been walking in the mountains for over 50 years, walking on my own for over 40 years and have been a qualified Mountain Leader since 1986. I have walked in high mountains all over the UK and Ireland, Spain, the Pyrennees, the Alps, Ethiopia, Australia and walked the GR20 in Corsica.

Event Details

Join us on The Cat’s Back, a fine narrow but not scary, airy, ridge walk 🙂


This 9.5-mile upland walk ascends the Cat’s Back, a rocky but relatively easy narrow ridge with a very good path in the northern Black Mountains. Once on top of the Cat’s Back, the route is pretty level for some miles taking in Hay Bluff and a section of the Offa’s Dyke path before descending into the Olchon valley and climbing back to the start point. There are also 2 1940’s aircraft crash sites close to the route. In good weather the views are extensive. Once up on the ridge, there is little shelter until we drop back into the valley.
