Rhos Fawr
Rhos Fawr or Great Rhos is a mountain summit in Mid Wales, and is the highest point on the Radnor Forest rock dome being 660 m or 2170 ft in height. The local rocks are sedimentary shales and mudstones with some Silurian limestone. The summit is located on a broad heathery plateau, which is separated from Black Mixen: the eastern plateau summit, by the cwm of Harvey Dingle. To the west is Drygarn Fawr and Gorllwyn, to the north Plynlimon, to the east Black Mixen at 650 m or 2133 feet in height, and to the south the Black Mountains.[1] References[edit]^ Nuttall, John & Anne (1999).

Mynydd Troed
Mynydd Troed is a hill in the Black Mountains of the Brecon Beacons National Park in Powys, south Wales. Its name literally translates to "Foot Mountain," based how it appears when viewed from the Allt Mawr ridge. It lies 3 miles south of Talgarth and 2 miles northeast of the village of Llangors on the western side of the range. Its summit at the northern end of a northwest to southeast aligned ridge reaches 609m above sea level and is crowned by a trig point.[1]Contents1 Geology 2 Access 3 References 4 External linksGeology[edit] The base of the hill is formed from mudstones of the St Maughans Formation whilst the upper part is formed from the sandstones and mudstones of the Senni Beds Formation, both of which are assigned to the Old Red Sandstone laid down during the Devonian period. A few old landslides scar its slopes, a couple of which are seen to advantage from Castell Dinas and the ridge of Y Grib to the east

Mountain
A mountain is a large landform that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area, usually in the form of a peak. A mountain is generally steeper than a hill. Mountains are formed through tectonic forces or volcanism. These forces can locally raise the surface of the earth. Mountains erode slowly through the action of rivers, weather conditions, and glaciers. A few mountains are isolated summits, but most occur in huge mountain ranges. High elevations on mountains produce colder climates than at sea level

Hergest Ridge is immediately to the south-east of the area, near the small town of Kington. The highest point in the area is Rhos Fawr or Great Rhos, a broad featureless plateau which reaches 660 metres (2,165 ft), and is equipped with a trig point to mark the summit. A similar plateau adjoining to the east, Black Mixen is the only Nuttall to have a communications mast (a radio transmitter) on its summit.[2] There is a famous waterfall or cascade on the eastern side of the mountain, called Water Break-its-neck

Lists Of Hills In The British Isles
The mountains and hills of Great Britain, and to a lesser extent Ireland, are the subject of a considerable number of lists that categorise them by height, topographic prominence, or other criteria. They are commonly used as a basis for peak bagging, whereby hillwalkers attempt to reach all the summits on a given list

Topographic Map
In modern mapping, a topographic map is a type of map characterized by large-scale detail and quantitative representation of relief, usually using contour lines, but historically using a variety of methods. Traditional definitions require a topographic map to show both natural and man-made features. A topographic map is typically published as a map series, made up of two or more map sheets that combine to form the whole map

South Wales
South Wales (Welsh: De Cymru) is the region of Wales bordered by England and the Bristol Channel to the east and south, and Mid Wales and West Wales to the north and west. The most densely populated region in the southwest of the United Kingdom, it is home to around 2.2 million people.[1] The region contains almost three-quarters of the population of Wales, including the capital city of Cardiff (population approximately 400,000), as well as Swansea and Newport, with populations approximately 250,000 and 150,000 respectively. The Brecon Beacons national park covers about a third of South Wales, containing Pen y Fan, the highest mountain south of Snowdonia. The region is loosely defined, but it is generally considered to include the historic counties of Glamorgan and Monmouthshire, sometimes extending westwards to include Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire
