Struck off using the compass and vague tracks across the sandy moor from Craig Cerrig-gleisiad. The gradually-changing perspectives of the Beacons were a feature. The vast bulk of Fan Fawr loomed ahead like a wall, and the ascent (no path) was a grind. Was able to rest and enjoy the morning sunshine, watching wild horses which had appeared near the summit, only to disappear into thin air. I saw them later, much lower down, having apparently negotiated the narrow rocky path. Descended to Storey Arms.peter4lc06/07/2003

Heavy snow in S. Wales, a youth gp’s leaders cancelled for h & s reasons so I got the place in the b and b. I got asked in Brecon on Friday evening ‘where is the place for snowboarding’. I suggested the Storey Arms. I started my ascent from there- a slog but in the snow with blue skies above it was great. Continued over Fan Frynich, down to the A470, and over Y Gyrn, a Nuttalls’ summit to complete a walk on a fabulous day. Just hope those snowboarders weren’t expecting a beer at the Storey Arms!pwheeler04/03/1995
