Pen y Fan Horseshoe - Brecon Beacons

Pen y Fan Horseshoe - Brecon Beacons jamehand

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.

A very pleasant epic day. Started off as just Fan-y-Big but got extended as the weather conditions were perfect for a big day out :-)
