This route covers most of the summits of the Brandon Group (except the two along the Faha Ridge). It is a long route which could conceivably be done in a day with light packs. However, we wished to test out our camping and other equipment prior to some wilderness trekking overseas later this summer, whilst at the same time videoing the route, hence we camped out for two nights along the way and the time we took is reflected in our desire to wild camp and wait for the right light conditions etc. For details of our 3-day trek and wild camping see http://kernowclimber.blogspot.ie/2015/04/trekking-and-wild-camping-in-brandon.html
Video to be released shortly...
