Marianne, Liam and I are off for a short trip to the Brecon Beacons, staying in Talgarth at the beginning of August. Marianne had been told about the “Pen y Fan Waterfall” - which I must admit was a new one on me! Research has led me to a “Four Waterfalls Walk” in the area.
Any recommendations for this walk, or which waterfall(s) to pick out to visit if not all? Any recommended routes - maybe even taking in GW/SW-001 summit? Though I imagine any summit trip would be an “add-on” from the Storey Arms side.
I am not aware af any half decent waterfall attached to Pen-y-Fan.
The best known waterfall walk is seen on:-
At one time or another I have looked at all these but not the walk as a whole. Not far from the new zip-wire on Craig-y-Llyn too
Edit There is the Blaen-y-Glyn waterfall on one approach to Waun Rydd, GW/SW-004.
Edit 2 If heading to the western Beacons be aware that they are now working on the A465 between Merthyr and Hirwaun - dualling the single carriageway so there is not much room for traffic. The A4059 moorland road from Storey Arms to Penderyn distillery is a good way around most of this disruption but deposits you on the final roundabout of the roadworks which was a real maze when we last did it.
Edit 3 You would be advised to avoid the area anywhere near Pen-y-Fan during August and especially at weekends.
You could use Frobisher’s 1971 Gambit which allows foreign names and get a mainline name with I/UM-057 Monte San Pancrazio (St. Pancras). Being in nip I can’t move but that move would mean someone on the way to MC in 3 moves.
Unfortunately , since we have progressed into the off topic variation, and yourself as the original poster, you must try to bring the game back to your original starting point (which would be the Brecon Beacons).
But to help you out - GW/SW-041 Black(Mountain)Friars
