We are going to do a five day hike in the Brecon Beacons covering 100km

Myself and two other friends are planning on doing a five day hike covering 100km in the Brecon Beacons, summiting the 7 highest peaks in the region (plus many more!). We will be self sufficient and set up camp each night, carrying all our food, provisions and kit for the trek.

We got up at 2:30am on the final day to see the sunrise

Sunday 30th Aug
On the final day of our hike (August 9th), Reuben and I decided it would be good fun to get up for sun rise and make good ground early in the day. Waking up at 2:30am seemed crazy, but once we had some hot food and packed up, we were ready to go. Walking through the night for an hour or so before reaching the summit of our first mountain that day, where we first caught glimpse of the rising sun over the mountains. See below our image, it was truly incredible!

We did it!

Sunday 30th Aug
Back on August 9th, Reuben and myself finished our epic expedition. Sadly due to bitter wind and rain on day two up on the Pen y Fan ridge, Alex was not able to continue as his kit got soaked. Reuben and I ploughed on though, hoping for better weather to dry our kit out. On day three we decided it would be best for us to wait out the remainder of the poor weather as Met Office weather promised bright sunshine to come. The following day we set off and sure enough it was boiling, enabling us to dry our kit and push on for the next few days which turned out to be the best weather all week!
