Description

Route - Start/End at Mountain Centre Libanus, headed up to Fan Frynych, Craig Cerrig-gleisiad, decided to keep up high to avoid bogs whilst heading towards Storey Arms so ended up going around the base of Fan Fawr before heading down to Storey Arms. Did a relocation exercise after Craig Cerrig-gleisiad approx 50m off GPS position. From Storey Arms headed across to Pont Daf to take the tourist path up to Pen y Fan before heading back down via Corn Du and Oblisk to Llyn Cwm Llwch. Headed to Libanus then back to Mountain Centre.
Weather - Started off overcast then sunny intervals and good visibility with moderate breeze on the peaks.
Learning Points - Route plan and pre walk organisation. Map reading, compass bearings, leg timing, 5Ds & re-location exercise.
Group - 2, Maria and myself

Area : Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) National Park

Bannau Brycheiniog (the Brecon Beacons) is a mountain range in South Wales. In a narrow sense, the name refers to the range of Old Red Sandstone peaks popular with walkers which lie to the south of Brecon. Sometimes referred to as "the central Beacons" they include South Wales' highest mountain, Pen y Fan. The range forms the central section of the Brecon Beacons National Park (Parc Cenedlaethol Bannau Brycheiniog), a designation which also encompasses ranges both to the east and the west of "the central Beacons". This much wider area is also commonly referred to as "the Brecon Beacons".
