Wales Outdoors owner Andy led a walk in Forest Fawr, the lesser walked area of the Brecon Beacons to the West of the A470 and Pen y Fan on Monday 2nd April.
Camping out overnight at Blaen Llia Car Park, Andy was waiting for the clients to arrive in thick mist and fresh snow, unseasonal for this the of the year.
Some got lost on the way and a few had cold feet due to the forecast and so Andy was joined by Melissa and Peter who are both members of the Wales Outdoors friendship group Adventure Activity South Wales.
Andy took few photos of the day as almost from the get go it was rain and wind all the way. The walk took the small group past a latin inscribed stone dating from the Roman occupation, over Pant Mawr and up onto Fan Gyhirwch although the group didn't summit due to the appalling weather.
Lunch was had very quickly in a small ravine and then it was heads down and skirting round Fan Need before sighting Maen Llia, a neolithic standing stone and following the river back to the car park.
Andy's feet were wet, his top of the range Salomon's had failed the wet test, and the others were pretty drenched. In that kind of weather waterproofs don't offer too much protection.
