Pen-y-Fan and Cribyn May 2018

Training for the July 2018 5in55 challenge for Ty Hafan really ramped up in the May, and I was regularly out climbing in the Brecon Beacons in all weathers.  When it rained, it poured.  But when the sun shone, it was exhilarating!  Due to work commitments, I mostly walked in the evening and watched the sun set over the mountains.  This provided great opportunities for landscape photography.  The vast majority of my time was spent climbing Pen-y-Fan and then walking across to Cribyn.  This presented plenty of tough climbs (especially up to the top of Cribyn), which were great for training.
