From "Storey Arms" access

"Took the horseshoe route from Neuadd car park up to Bwich-ar-y-fan, made a detour up Fan-y-Big and back again, then continued up Cribyn, on to Pen-y-fan, Corn Du and Duwynt then SSE along the ridge. A slight detour to the trig point at 642m before descending the new path, across the reservoir wall and then back to the car. Took just over 4 hours with no stops. " - vygodski, Apr 15, 2017

"Spent a few days on Brecon during my Army days. Came here to carry out Navigation excercise's, both day and night. Some tough slogs up the hills. As with all my summits whilst serving, I want to return with my family one day, and enjoy the views." - UK-Ranger, Jul 17, 1987
"Took a bus to the Storey Arms access from Brecon & walked over Corn Du, Pen y Fan, Cribyn & a few others. Took a ridge down to Pencilli village, cut across fields, followed a canal, forded the Usk River, cut across more farmland to Tallylyn then followed a road to Llangorse Lake where we tented for the night. Walked to a pub & back in Llangorse after tea. A good days walking!" - glennj, Apr 7, 1983
