We will meet at the small car park next to the Tafarn-y-Garreg Pub in the Brecon Beacons. From here we will head up the steep climb to the peak of Fan Brycheiniog before following the ridge to Fan Foel and Picws Du before descending down a scree slope and following the steady, flat and beautiful trail along the base of the mountains and back to the car.
