Sunday 30th - The Beacons Horseshoe

10 miles, Strenuous, Band D
This walk encompasses the four main peaks of the Central Beacons.
Starting from the Car Park, we traverse the head of the Lower Neuadd Reservoir

then proceed to Pen y Fan and Cribyn before descending into the Windy Gap.
After another ascent, we summit Fan Y Big.
The route then descends to the Roman Road, which we follow back to the car park.
This is a challenging mountain hike with numerous ascents and descents.
However, the exertion is well-rewarded by some of the finest mountain vistas in South Wales.
