If you do this from the Pont a Daf carpark it is very busy and can get congested with massive parking issues! Locally called the M4 due to the sheer number of people who do this path! Easy enough to do though, but expect to queue at the top for a photo by the cairn!
If you do the trail from the Storey Arms, it is more difficult but you will still experience same parking issues!
Oh for the days when no one climbed this!!!

I have done this route many times and it is great! Once the initial incline up to ridge is complete the walk along the ridge is straightforward with excellent views across the valley! The climb upto penyfan is fine too and the descent the other side is a bit steep! The climb up to the Cribyn is steep but straightforward. Once you ascend from there the walk down the RomanRoad is easy! I love this route!

Easy walk.. Last waterfall is the best.. Waterproof clothes and shoes essential...

Very nice.. It took 6 hours to finish.. Not for beginners...
