Corn Du's summit
Corn Du (Corn Dee - Black Horn) stands to the southwest of Pen y Fan and the second highest peak in South Wales, situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

The two summits of Corn Du and Pen y Fan are visible from great distances owing to their height above the surrounding moorland, and are famous landmarks. The views from the peaks are also panoramic and very extensive.

The summit itself is marked by a well structured Bronze Age cairn with a central burial cist like that on nearby Pen y Fan.
