Story by Andee from Birmingham, United Kingdom, submitted on 10/12/2011
After the slow winding route from Hay you veer right past the turn for Craswall and over a cattle grid.The road steepens here for the hardest part of the climb.After a few hundred yards you are greeted to a fantastic view of Hay Bluff and Twmpa and the snaking road between them which is your destination.All enjoyable now and once you clear the pass the drop into the Ewyas valley is wonderful. Beware of Tractors trimming the hedgerows though. The road becomes a puncture minefield
