This is a 21km walk, of which roughly 19km is up hill and a good 8km of this is very steep

Due to an exceptional weather event on our attempt at this walk in August we had to turn back before the fun began at the summits, so this time join us whilst we conquer the mountains and attempt to regain our honour by completing the route! Even if you were not on the first attempt at this route, come along anyway. There are no reserved places and the more the merrier.

This circular walk takes you up the valley through the heart of the Brecon Beacons and back along one of the most beautiful edge walks Wales has to offer. It would be an easy day if you went straight up the short path to the summit but this route takes you on the long and steady up hill route. The first 13km are steady up and then you reach the steep up and sharp drops of the 2 summits around the largest mountain in the region, who's summit adds a punishing 3rd summit to the tally. This middle section will test your stamina for the next 6km. The good news is the last 2 or 3km are straight down, for some respite at the end. This walk comes with stunning views as you progress up the valley and pass the two lakes, but those views take on a whole new perspective as you double back along the summit line. Please note this final section is mainly along a steep cliff and it really is not suitable if you suffer from vertigo!
