All bye myself on Fan Y Big

Hewitts: Fan y Big

Date walked: 16/04/2014

Time taken: 2 hours

Distance: 8.14km

Ascent: 330m

Yet again coming off a night shift I wanted a walk. Not having done a lot of walking over the last twelve months I wanted an easy walk but with a little bit of hard work thrown in for good measure, Fan Y Big seemed to fit the bill for me. Parking the van just below the neuadd reservoir grid ref so036171.

The walk along the track is very easy going ( watch out for the ankle biters. you know them little loose stones that can twist your ankle) As I walked along the track the clouds broke and the sun came out and the views started to open up. I could see people heading up and walking along Graig Fan Ddu.

The walk up to the summit short and steep but well worth it as the view is fantastic.

. After spending half an hour or so on my own three people turned up and I waited for them to leave then made my way back to the van one happy teddy bear.
