The peaks of Pen y Fan and Corn Du are the highest in South Wales. The view from the top is awe-inspiring and although it is a long climb up, it is fairly gradual. Plenty of excuse for stops on the way up as the views unfold. The route down is more gradual and not as well-defined, but if you look well ahead as you start to cross the mountain you will be able to pick out where you are going.

(06/06/2013) A highly recommended walk. Our weather was excellent and the views throughout were amazing. The route details were 'spot on' and the tracks easy to follow. However, the walk across Y Gryn from the stile to the track leading to the road, is undefined and across peat bog. Time and care is needed along this section, particularly in wet weather.

Did This walk on the 2008 august bank holiday. Unfortunately the predicted dry weather was completely wrong (thanks bbc). The walk is well written and we'll return on a better day to get what I can see would be great views. Be aware - the second half of the walk is across moarland and the path becomes indistinct especially as the weather closed in very quickly on the day we did the walk and visibilty dropped to 20m. Recommended walk though.

A superb walk with great directions. Recommend doing this on a fine day as the views will be outstanding. The short scrambles up and down Corn Du are easy and worth doing. One point, Pen-y-fan is the highest point, not Corn Du as mentioned. A terrific walk, very well written. Excellent 10/10.
