As i drove up A470 to the Storey arms (which was my start point) Corn ddu Pen y fan and Cribbin were covered in fog, not looking good. looked up to Fan fawr that was the same. Parked the car decided to take the more direct route up to Fan fawr. This is not to difficult, just one steep bit. Got to the summit ( small cairn) looked for trig point to much fog. Now it was time to back track and pick up the Beacon way to Graig cerrig gliesiad.The path in between was a bit faint in places but once i picked up the Beacons way path it was easy to follow to Graig cerrig gleisiad and up to Fan Frynych. As the morning moved into early afternoon the weather started to clear the sun almost came out Time to back track again back to my car and home.
