Walked route 6.1 from the Nuttall's book but in reverse order as it was wet wet wet in the morning and I was hoping the clouds might clear by the time I got to Arenig Fawr (didn't really work). Pretty wet underground. Gallt y Daren, Foel Boeth, Moel Llyfnant and the 3 Arenig Fawr tops. Walked past South Ridge Top and had to go back (rookie mistake).tsharp09/09/2018

Didn't realise this was a nuttall, but climbed it en route to Gallt y Daren.isabelle26/10/2010
From near Arenig hamlet in a clockwise loop. Arenig Fawr is good hill, but the gem was Moel Llyfnant which is very shapely. The western hills are just a slog through bog!SS26/09/2010

Parked at 8028533554 spaces for a number of cars. Up the road, across the bog to Foel Boeth then Galit y Daren onward via Moel yr Wden to Moel Llyfnant with Mary. A pleasant round trip but some deep bog in places to the south of the col with Arenig Fawr.Glenelg07/03/2010
