A hike from the Storey Arms to Torpantau taking in the tops of Corn Du, Pen-y-Fan, Cribyn, and Fan-y-Big.
Distance 11 km
This route starts near the storey arms centre, and climbs up Corn Du, then onto Pen-y-Fan. From Pen-y-Fan it follows the Breacon Beacons way to the tops of Cribyn, and Fan-y-Big. Finally ending up at a car park on the opposite side of the mountains.
The surface of the path is pretty harsh in many places. Not to be taken lightly. When you leave the start, there is next to no shelter along the whole route. Water, food, map, compass, and an emergency bag are highly recommended to complete this route.
Taking it easy with frequent breaks, this hike took us 6 hours.
To complete this route you will need to work out the logistics of putting a car at each end. Alternatively the Storey arms is served by a Bus service.
