- At the junction of the A470 and A4215 (about 5 miles SW of BRECON) take the minor road leading in the OPPOSITE direction from the A4215.
- Continue to some WHITE PAINTED HOUSES and then instead of following the minor road to the left go straight on down the dead end road for about a mile.
- Go past the “No vehicles” and BLAENGLYN FARM signs and continue until the tarmac road stops.
- The basecamp is just past the main farm on the RIGHT hand side and signposted DAN-Y-GRYN.
The surrounding country is spectacular but very wild – GOOD WET WEATHER/MOUNTAIN GEAR IS ESSENTIAL plus BOOTS.
