Just a short walk up to Fan fawr. Started at storey arms car park. Walked along what was supposed to be the beacons way. The going was very soft and boggy underfoot heading towards Cefn yr Henriw, then followed the ridge up to Fan fawr, as i climbed the ridge looking across to the path up to Corn ddu the path was very busy and i had Fan fawr all to myself.then headed back down to the carpark. Would have like to have walked further but short of time.
