Overview

We will start from the Blaen y Glyn (Torpantau) car park, climb to the top of the escarpment and then take a generally level path towards Fan y Big. The views from the escarpment en-route to Fan Y Big are spectacular. Note that we have a steep climb at the start and steep decent off Fan y Big. 

Plan to arrive at the start point at 10:15 so that we can make a prompt start at 10:30.

No need to register, but a text or WhatsApp to indicate your intention to join the walk v. helpful.
