Fan y Big - Brecon Beacons

Fan y Big - Brecon Beacons jamehand

16th Aug 2015

A walk right in the heart of the Brecon Beacons. A climb up to Craig y Fan Ddu is followed by a walk along Graig Fan Las to the main north-facing escarpment of the Beacons. Following the escarpment to the summit of Fan y Big you then descend to the 'Gap Road' and follow the road back to the Neudd reservoirs.

Beacons: 625 | Distance: 15.2 km | Height Gain: 484 m

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 :-)
