A very cold start to the day and the summit was hidden in clouds as I ascended from the Storey Inn carpark. That didn't stop any of the hundreds of people here heading upwards into the clouds either!
This is probably the busiest summit in south Wales, and today was no exception. As I was departing the carpark, two 16 seat minibuses parked up, and the 32 people on board set off up the trail behind me. There were similar parties up ahead in the distance.
Arriving at the summit there was nothing to see other than cloud!
|At the summit|
The ground was frozen solid and temperatures were well below zero.

With my backpack on I looked out at the view for one last time before the descent.
|View towards Cribyn|
|View towards Pen y Fan from Corn Du|
|On the descent|
Descending to the car, Fan Fawr loomed ahead in the distance.
