Corn Du, Pen y Fan and Cribin Circular Walking

A day out on mainly easy to follow paths that takes in the highest (and most popular) summits in south Wales.
A circular route taking in a couple of summits. Used for students, many of whom are experiencing this environment for the first time. Not too strenuous but commitment required. Option to miss out Cribin if necessary. Previously done route starting at storey arms for slightly longer day.
