I see this has been added too the Nuttall list since my completion so I thought I would use it for an excuse for a walk even though I know I have walked this ridge previously. Got just about the last place in the car park which surprised me considering it is a Monday and mid-morning. Up from the A470 car park and a nice rest in the sun on top.Father Ted16/03/2020
11.7 mile walk from Blaen Y Glyn Uchaf car park, along Taf Trail through Taf Fechan forest then along to diverted path around Lower Neuadd dam, climbed up much improved path up to Twyn Mwyalchod trig then followed ridge along to Corn Du, Pen.Y Fan (both 4th time bagged) then onto Cribyn and Fan.Y.Big (both 3rd time bagged) then followed Beacons Way down Craig Y Fan Ddu back to car park. Clear sunny/cold/breezy weather, clouds came down on Pen.Y.Fan briefly but lifted quickly, hundreds of people around because first good day for a while.DanTrig18/01/2020

Bagged as part of a 3 hour walk from Storey arms to Brecon, via Pen Y Fan and Cribyn.kasharic03/10/2018
Solo. From the carpark a little south of Storey Arms. After ascending Corn Du and Pen y Fan went down ridge and up to Cribyn. Returned by a path that contours across the southern slopes of Pen y Fan and on a whim went up to the cairn on Craig Gwaun Taf and then back to the highest point which is on a knoll on the edge of the crag. Only found out it is now a Nuttall when I returned home. Continued to Y Gyrn. Mostly good weather but some mist and a little rain.pwbellarby15/09/2018
My final Welsh Nuttall. Took the path up from Pont ar Daf. Since I was up here I also walked across to Corn Du and Pen Y Fan. Down via the path to Storey Arms. Saw several people in slacks and blazers and also some idiot who didn't have his dog on the lead chasing sheep all the way down the side of the mountain, fortunately the sheep were faster.tsharp15/09/2018

Quick trip up Corn Du from Storey Arms looping round to get back to the road by the carpark. A quick detour along the ridge to Craig Gwaun Taf completed the Beacons chapter for me and was the reason behind today's walk.ruthatlast07/08/2018
