Start Time
Parking is north of Pontsticill, but be aware that the Vaynor road between Trefechan and Ponsticill is closed, so if you are coming from the south you need to go via Pant. (Also check re eternal roadworks on A465).. Please check South Wales website before you travel for any last minute changes. (It is advisable to arrive 10 minutes before the meet/start time)

A circular around the Talybont Reservoir - Waun Rydd, the Wenallt and Tor y Foel. Could be a winter wonderland, but no liability can be accepted if it is not! Graded as hard with 3720 feet of ascent

General Notes
This is a winter walk in the Central Beacons. Wind chill down to -10C or lower is not unusual, conditions can be brutal. You must come properly equipped for all weathers and, if you want to drop out, be prepared to self-navigate back to the car
