We'll start by will go up through a very steep meadow to the path of the Brecon and Merthyr Junction Railway (known locally as the Breakneck and Murder railway, owing to a tendency to have serious accidents, caused by the steep gradients to what was the highest railway tunnel in Britain). We then follow the railway route to the bent 666 yard long Torpantau Tunnel Then another steep ascent to the summit of Craig y Fan Ddu (683) metres. From there we'll walk around the rim of the massive Cerrig Edmwnt hanging valley, getting to over 750 metres, with outstanding views of the highest mountains. We'll then have a well deserved lunch stop at the Wellingtom memorial, before doing a tough descent past a series of waterfalls and pools and back to the car park.
