|MountainDuck||FINALLY Got amazing weather in Wales |
Date Climbed: Jan 1, 2012
|Having climbed Pen-y-Fan just the previous day I thought I would take advantage of the good weather & venture back into the Brecon Beacons. This turned out to be a gorgeous climb because it ended up snowing above 750 meters (approximate) which gave all the surrounding mountains a gorgeous white layer. I had a few glimpses of gorgeous views all around, but the highlight was the snow. Be prepared for drastically changing weather patterns.|

|Big Benn||Used North Ridge Route |
Date Climbed: Apr 21, 2009
|My first visit to the Brecon Beacons and chose the North Ridge route after starting from the National Trust car park at Cwm Gwdi. A nice steep pull up the last part of the North Ridge to the Summit, then a gentler walk onto Pen Y Fan, Corn Ddu and back via Pen Y Fan and directly North to my car at Cwm Gwdi. The valley fog did clear to warm sunshine, but then turned into low cloud later in the day!|

|mountainmanmark||Only The Once|
|I have only ventured to this part of Wales to climb once, and did all four, must do something about it though. I remember caving somewhere around there too but not to sure where, got completely stuck in a keyhole.|
