    The highest road pass in Wales with views of Hay Bluff and Twmpa in the Black Mountains. It can be climbed from Hay-on-Wye or Abergavenny sides.

    The road quality is better to descend down to Hay-on-Wye, the other side is more technical as it is narrow and twisty with lots of rough road surface.

    One of the classic rides in Wales is to do the Gospel Pass. Not for the faint hearted but well worth the views.
