Pen Y Fan

Bannau Brycheiniog, Cymru

Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales

September 18th 2023

Although Pen Y Fan is the tallest peak in South Wales, it is a mere 886m tall and the hike starts from about 440m anyway. Being rather more a short walk then, we managed a there-and-back loop in about 2 hours. However, it should be said the last part was closer to a run than a walk, as clouds moved over the area and freezing winds and rains began. I also did this exact hike last year, with photos I have not posted until now:
