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.

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
