Andy’s Secret Pen y Fan Hike
March 10 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£59.50
Highlights Explore the dramatic landscapes of Pen y Fan, the iconic Beacons peak – Be regaled with the history and myths of the Central Brecon Beacons – Laugh out loud as you use the mountain as a slide, from peak to lake 🙂
Full description This is a truly iconic Beacons day out and one that Andy is master of! Andy will be guiding you on a classic but lesser walked route to Pen y Fan’s summit. Andy includes adventures throughout! Following the Taff up to it’s source, this route we’ll have to ourselves, some may get wet feet so good boots a must and waterproof socks are a good investment. Then it’s the steep climb to Corn Du and onto Pen y Fan, taking in the views, seeking out the fossil beach, getting some fine instagram worthy snaps. It’s then off piste once again and we’ll have the mountain to ourselves as we hilariously slide own steep slopes on our bums. This is a truly hysterical experience! Old waterproof trousers are good here – Andy cannot be held responsible for wearing out your bum padding 😉 We’ll explore Llyn Cwm Llwch and discuss its mysteries before heading up to the sad memorial of Tommy Jones where Andy will relay the true facts of this case. A final mountain, Yr Gyrn, is peak bagged as we descend to the start point.
