We are the Pilgrims, master; we shall go
Always a little further: it may be
Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
Across that angry or that glimmering sea …
The mountain is Pen y Fan (The Fan), where the SAS do a lot of training. Pen y Fan is the highest peak in south Wales, situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park.
