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

P opposite large Quarry to N of Arenig Fawr. Headed W then N along a good track passing a small quarry - path then turns nasty for a wile but soon becomes a good green track up to col. Visited Moel Llyfnant first then return to col & on to Arenig Fawr S ridge top & S top, then Arenig Fawr herself. Arenig tops quite nice. Return roughly N then W to join outward path passing little quarry.ger28/09/2018
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

Arenig Fawr, Arenig Fawr South Top & South Ridge Tops, Moel Llyfnant from Pont Rhys-y-Fen. Followed Nuttall route as far as Moel Llyfnant then along fence down North ridge back to disused railway and return to road. Beautiful day with blue sky, frozen ground, cloud inversion. Arenig Fawr is one of Wales's hidden gems .... a big rugged mountain with views encompassing most of North and Mid Wales. Highly recommend ... walked solo but saw no-one all day until I summited Moel Llyfnant.jamessteel10026/11/2016
