11 High Points in Brecon Beacons Walking

Simple walk along the Brecon Beacons
A walk from Aber, all the way over to the A470, taking in all the high points on the way, marked on the OS map, in total 11 'summits'. Note that due to the length of the route, two vehicles would be best suited, one at the end, and one at the beginning, unless trail running, where all summits could be attained and a reversal of the route would be possible in daylight hours
