Left car at Sarn Helen/road junction (SN924184). E up Fan Llia, around N end of Ystradfellte Reservoir, up Brest y Fan to TP at Fan Fawr. Off Fan Fawr via v steep path dropping towards Storey Arms, then NE along Beacons Way to this TP. Eroded ground allows concrete base to form a seat. Lunch stop with superb views all around. Path SW to join Sarn Helen and back to car. Great day's walking and views.

Did a nice little circular walk from the layby on the A470 to the SW. Excellent views of the western brecons, Pen y Fan and Powys to the north. Lovely warm spring sunshine until the inevitable cloud cover rolled in from the south.

First of three trigs while walking around Ystradfellte Reservoir. Sheep were standing on the base seeking shelter, though it wasn't that cold today. The plate above the flush bracket has been prized off. Better views from nearby, though not a good day for views.

Standing as I did like a lost soul on heaven's eternal path, the Fan Frynych pillar, which incidentally the spelling of which I had to check 5 times through consultation of my Egyptian hieroglyphs book remains isolated but a suitable piece of foreground action for some decent shots of Corn Ddu and Pen Y Fan. Considering the notorious extreme weather in the area the pillar remains sure and steadfast against the forces of nature as a proud monument to those who reach the point.

Foreground Attraction! Fan Frynych Pillar A rare chance of decent weather provided this shot of the Fan Frynych Pillar, with Corn Ddu and Pen Y Fan in the background.

High cloud and sunny intervals the mountain weather forecast promised. Lucky I bought all my gear then as it started to rain and the temperatures dropped. Both the plaque and plug are now missing. A nice climb up from the A470 nevertheless with cliffs on your left.
