|The start of the "ant trail"|
|Corn Du (L) and Pen Y Fan (R)|
There is a well maintained path all the way to the summit to cater for the thousands of visitors that make this pilgrimage every year. The path splits towards the top, heading left it ascends to Corn Du at 873 metres, or a lower path contours around this to the right and eventually up to Pen Y Fan. It was relatively quiet on the top of Corn Du only a dozen or so people enjoying the extensive views in the fine weather.

I joined the ant trail and made a quick descent down what was now a busy "motorway" of people ascending and descending. Back at the car I had some luch and then planned on an attack of Fan Fawr.
