Owner description: At just under 3,000 feet, this is the highest mountain in South Wales and the jewel in the crown that is the Brecon Beacons National Park.

One of Wales's most scenic attractions - it has always been a burning ambition to climb the mountain that I can see from my home almost 18 miles away! It took us quite a while to go up and back down but it was worth it just for the view

Highest mountain in Brecon Beacons and indeed in South Wales. Must be reasonably fit but can take the climb at own pace- well worth it when u get to the top

Thought you meant the path up the highest mountain in the Brecon Beacons. Don't recognise the pic. The path is very worn but is being renovated
