This mountain is actually 3m shorter than the neighbouring Fan Fraith, but a lot more dramatic to look at.

Fan Nedd and Pen y Fan
Fan Nedd on the right and Pen y Fan in the distance on the left. Tamron Adaptall SP 24-48 @ 35mm, f8.

It has a cairn on one end which juts out nicely against the sky and offers great views of Pen y Fan, it has the highest point marked by a trig point towards the middle.

Cambrian Way
Leaving the gravel road you pick up the South Wales Traverse footpath, which at this point coincides with the Cambrian Way. Tamron Adaptall SP 24-48mm @ 48mm, f3.8.

You dip down over a well established path that takes you to the cairn at the edge of the mountain. The route is steep, but easy enough and if the weather is dry there are plenty of natural sitting spots to take a breather. The summit was busier than I expected, I had it to myself for a few minutes but saw a couple different groups of walkers shortly after.

Fan Nedd
You can see the cairn on the left point and just spot the trig point in the middle. Tamron Adaptall SP 24-48mm @ 48mm, f11.
