Parked at SH 8231 3924 for a circuit of 3 Dodds, 2 Nuttalls, 2 ex-Nuttalls and a repeat Marilyn. 5/8.PGCE25/01/2024
From Ystrodur Fawr. Very wet lower down - new Inov8 boots doing a reasonable job. A long way to go to bag a deleted Nuttall. I should have bagged it when passing in 2016 but in those days I considered collecting anything less than P100 ridiculous. Now I'm more enlightened and it's a good spot to appreciate the rough east face of Arenig Fawr. 7.8km, 365m, 2 hours.Wycombe Wanderer08/10/2023

Warm day, views would have been better with less haze. Very tough walk, lots of boggy pathless parts.Lazylizzie12/06/2021

With Richie from SH823392. Revisits of Moel Lechwedd and Arenig Fawr (also 22/09/08) followed by AF South Top, Carreg y Diocyn, AF South Ridge Top and Moel Llyfnant. Very wet and windy and the cloud only started to clear when we got to Llyfnant. Nice sunny decent and lovely walk down to Amnodd-wen, during which the birds, which had all been cowering in the undergrowth, suddenly sprang to life. We were treated to good views of a hen harrier, cuckoo, sparrowhawk, redstarts and buzzard.Herbert Anchovy08/06/2019
