An hour in, I had my first sighting of other walkers in the distance, typically they were all congregating around the 3 peaks I was bound for.
Ticked off Fan y Big at 10.30am, Had climbed Cribyn by 11am, and after a lunch break half way up Pen y Fan, had reached it's summit by midday.
So, with the punishing climbs complete, a small matter of continuing around the horseshoe to a steep, rocky path that descended to the Neuadd Reservoir. Half way down I was passed by a naked rambler heading slowly up! My only thought was how much sun block he was wearing on a day like today!
At the reservoir, I rested under the first piece of shade I had seen for five hours! Then, on along the Taff Trail back to the car park. A tiring walk in the heat, but well worth the effort!
