This is a classic mountain walk in the heart of the Brecon Beacons, taking in the summits of Corn Du, Pen y Fan and Cribyn (Fan y Big will be an optional extra). The walk includes some steep ascents and the paths are sometimes close to some steep drops. Be prepared for cold, windy weather – and potentially sunshine and showers! Warm hats, gloves and waterproofs are essential. Bring extra layers for when we stop. At this time of year it is worth putting a torch in your bag, just in case.
Update: Saturday 1630 – The forecast is looking good but it will feel cold (close to freezing) in the wind on the summits. See the Mountain Weather Information Service for details. Hats, gloves and waterproof jackets will give protection and are essential!
