FATMAP difficulty grade
Start at the top of the ridge after a slog up, usually on wet ground.
This is generally a windy place to rest.
From here continue along the edge line, rising steadily throughout.
Pass the path junction after the ridge walk, just before the short climb up to Corn Du, and onto the summit of Pen y Fan.
Follow the path to the junction (there is an option to miss out Cribin and contour round the bottom, which might be handy for less fit members of the group).
On from there is a this a sheltered spot for a short break before the trudge along the path back.
There are some nice views back to be had. © jgogs - UKHillwalking.com, Oct 2011.
