Topic - Brecon beacons

Magicdan - on 01 Jan 2014
Hi all, I'm new to this forum so I hope this is in the right section.
In the first weekend of February me and a buddy are going into the Brecon Beacons, my question is this, what are the conditions likely to be and will I need to go with full on ice axe and Crampons?
We are pretty well equipped and experienced so know all the relevant precautions to take I just don't want to take them if I don't need to due to weight and space.
Although we are experienced most of our Hill walking is in the spring and summer although we did go up a couple of smaller hills (moel siabod and another that I can't remember the name of) in December last year and it was snowy and a little icey but perfectly fine.
Any help and advice would be much appreciated.
