15th Aug 2015

A hike that includes the three main peaks of the Brecon Beacons could arguably claim to be the finest walk in South Wales. A steady ascent of Cribyn is followed by an airy walk along the ridge via a col to Pen y Fan the highest point in Britain south of Snowdon. Then a short hop along the top to Corn Du and return down the dramatic slopes of Pen y Fan.

Beacons: 544 | Distance: 13.2 km | Height Gain: 918 m
