After deliberating on the weather forecast all week and deciding to initially head NW, i changed plans at last minute to go East and do the Ben Avon round. The rain was supposed to come in around 17:00 so i set off at 05:00, on my bike. I'd been putting them off for ages, due the the heavy milage involved to bag 4 summits. Ben Avon it was.

Hi, was just planning a route around Ben Avon and found your Ben Avon 4 walk report. It looks exactly what I was trying to organise. A bit cheeky, but I don't suppose you have the GPX for that route? Thanks, Scott

Thanks for posting this. This is the 1st report I have seen of these 4 together. Good to finally see some clear piccies of the route. Bar the river crossings it looks there is a good 'motorway' up to the top of Ben Avon. We are planning this Steven Fallon route this summer. Roll on the good weather!
