On the way down from Moel-ddu to Tyddin Mawr.Topographer5702/08/2019
From Nantmor CP (£4.00). Moel-Ddu & its W top visited first - then back to CP & on to Moel Y Dyniewyd (there is a path through heather from high point of pass). Moel-Ddu is an excellent hill with super summit views - I basically followed the mapped path but made the mistake of not crossing the FB early on in the forest & following a signed path that is not mapped.ger27/03/2019

From carpark at Dam. The Southern shore has a path of sorts but boy is it rough and intermittent. Higher up its just a case of following the wall. A clamber over is required to get into the summit field. No views due to low cloud.stig_nest25/08/2017
