A fairly strenuous but rewarding circuit of Sugar Loaf from Crickhowell. We leave CRiC and walk down the river to the army camp and ascend Rheld wood. Descending to Millbrook Bridge we walk past Hall Farm and steeply up the road, then steadily up to the top of Sugar Loaf with panoramic views. From the top we descend the western ridge and drop down to the delightful Grwyne Fawr which we follow to Llangenny. After a pause for refreshment at the Dragon Inn we ascend the short steep hill and return to Crickhowell along a quiet road and across fields.
