We start in a forest which opens on to the magnificent Blaen y Glyn valley carved by glaciation. We’ll follow the stream into the heights visiting the haunting remains of a Wellington Bomber before visiting the impressive Carn Pica. Following the edges of the ridge we then make our way to the summit of Fan Y Big for a photo opportunity on the diving board before descending to the Gap Road, past the Neuadd reservoirs and returning to the start via the Taf Fechan Forest.
