Walk up Fan Frynych and Craig Cerrig Gleision Details
Nestling opposite the busy central Brecon Beacons and Pen y Fan, lies the Fforest Fawr and Fan Frynych, and while the upper reaches are flat and boggy, the crags in the cwm below are as rugged as anywhere in the Beacons. Of course, you also get a grandstand view back over the Tarell Valley to the Central Brecon Beacons and the crowds that walk there. You, on the other hand, will be (un)lucky to see anyone else on this quiet walk.
