Fan-y-Big and Cribyn, Brecon Beacons

Despite the chance of this walk being cancelled considering the stormy weather the preceding week, the walk went ahead in pretty good weather for a mountain walk.  There were odd windy spells of rain on the tops, and it was often wet underfoot, but otherwise it stayed dry for most of the walk.  Starting from the fantastic Blaen-Y-Glyn waterfalls, the route ascended to Craig Fan Ddu, a fine ridge with stunning views, and then on to Fan-Y-Big (795m) with the most majestic views for miles and miles, with Pen-Y-Fan across the valley.  Only one member decided to take the tough climb to Cribyn (well done Graham) and the rest of the group made their way back to the start along the Roman Road,  past the Neuadd Reservoir and through Taf Fechan Forest.  The most magnificent walk in this magnificent part of the world.
