With Arthog outdoor centre group (instructor Dave and 10 students). Started from end of road near Graigddu-isaf. Follow tracks through forest towards Bwlch Drws-Ardudwy. After emerging from forest, took a route up the mountain following a path through grassy rakes. From summit, descended east along wall to reach corner of forest, and back to minibus along tracks. Excellent weather. Dry and mostly sunny. 5 hours.jamessteel10003/07/2019

Approach from east to Bwlch Drws-Ardudny (initially on good forest tracks - some signage). Visited Rhinog Fawr then Rhinog Fach. Very impressive hills with a character of their own. Good summit views, but mist prevented clear distant views - could just make out the sea.ger27/02/2019

Staight up very steeply from cairn at top of Bwlch Drws Ardudwy . Followed by herd of mountain goats who stopped every time I did like in a game. Don't know what they wanted but they gave up the chase after a while. Still tough but much easier on a path than Fawr earlier. Over 6 hours to do the two hills- very slow going.Mark Sims01/09/2017
Rhinog Fawr, Rhinog Fach, Y Llethr, Crib-y-rhiw, Diffws, Diffws West Top. Followed route in Nuttall's book. Couldn't find anyone at the farm so I left £2 parking fee in the porch. Weather had closed in by the end and it was a long day, made the mistake of following the bridleway at GR634240 on the map instead of getting The Nuttalls book out of my rucksack! Should have turned off at GR 640242 and headed for the gate at GR637246.tsharp07/06/2017
