Park at Cwm allt y lwyd bend 788282,Rhobell y big, Rhobell ganol, Rhobell Fawr, Rhobell fawr west top descend down faint path near wall east to plantation track, down track 600m 797249 then use ride which has easy path SE to to ride going SE to Moel Caer defaid west top, Craig y Benglog. then straight walk to Ddualt cross stream at 80702 25400 ground surprisingly dry. decent from Ddualt N fenceline to ford. Old posts and mesh scattered causing trip hazardunderhill17/11/2018
13.2 mile walk from gated road south, parked in unfenced field at the side of road walked west to Ffridd Carmel farm and along grassy footpath to road north of Llanfachreth followed road to end ascending Bwlch Goriwared, short heathery climb onto Cerniau then followed nice gradual path onto Rhobell Fawr, arrived 3 minutes before the cloud did so got a quick glimpse of the view. We left summit quickly and took wrong path north when we wanted to head east, after a 20 min diversion including climbing down a rockface we descended to the forest below Dduallt, followed the clear firebreaks through to opposite side of forest and made our own rough route up to Dduallt, descended the same way but via a swamp this time back past forest (a lot has been felled) and followed good lane SW back to where we parked. Apart from the cloud coming down on Rhobell Fawr, the rest of the day was fine with high cloud, great views, saw 3 people all day, all on Rhobell Fawr.DanTrig29/09/2018
Tough going, great views though.dadofmorph21/04/2018

5/5 On Snowy, very cold heather bashing day ! (Foel y Graig/Craig y Llestri/Drysgol/Cefn Glas/Ddualt)Fergalh17/03/2018
Followed the route in the Nuttalls book from Cwm yr Allt-lwyd. Maybe I'm getting to be a scaredy cat in my old age but I didn't fancy the ford, even though there hadn't been any rain recently. I walked upstream a little to where the stream splits and that was much easier to do and I kept my shoes dry. Climbed up to Dduallt with no difficulty. The other obstacle of the day, the forest, was pretty easy. Weather was glorious so good views all around.tsharp04/06/2017
this is a hill to do in bone dry conditions or after server frost.its boggy and faint paths make going tough. start as per book and follow it as it does give the best line of attackAristotle Chip26/05/2017
Exactly as David Gradwell --thanks for tip re forest.Crib Goch10/04/2017
Nuttall route + two Deweys. Parked on rough grassy area at SH 78827 29232 beside track that leaves road at sharp bend. Ddaullt > Rhobell Fawr > Cynefin Bryn Blew [Rhobell Fawr West Top] > Rhobell Ganol > Rhobell-y-big. Went through forest using straight firebreak that starts at SH 80385 25697. Make sure you keep going directly west through this firebreak and don't drift off south. The terrain is difficult at first but gets a lot better as long as you keep heading west.David Gradwell24/08/2016
From Cwm Allt Lwyd. Parked at Dolcynafon (derelict farmhouse), crossed bridge to north side of Afon Mawddach, followed track up the north slope behind Allt Lwyd farmhouse, to the bwlch. Continued N on track to ford (Rhyd y Re) over Mawddach, and continued S on track rising to the ridge. Followed ridge and fence all the way to summit. Nice and easy.Dewi Prysor05/08/2016
From the west. And followed the Affon Mawddach along and up an excellent track before crossing the stream and onto fine ridge following fence line. The isolation and solitude is palpable. FInal Welsh HuMP celebrated on my own with a bottle of diluted mango and orange squash, half a bag of Tesco's mixed nuts and an apple. Peaceful. Avoid the replanted forest at all costs. Nightmare underfoot and another shortcut that totally backfired.Campbell Singer21/07/2016

With Steve and Lindsay on a fine day visiting Dduallt, Rhobell Fawr, Rhobell Fawr West Top, Rhobell Ganol and Rhobell-y-big.knarf27/09/2015
Parked the car at the junction 797249. Minor gated road up pass Aran Hall School. Did Rhobell Fawr first. Then went along forest road to footpath sign to Y Dduallt. A lot of trees down and then on open land - boggy. Came back to enter forest at 801279 and back along forest road. Make sure you come into the forest by a fire break as a lot of trees down. When I did it there were yellow tapes for some race.johnjennison10/09/2015

parked the car at SH 796 232 at the top of the minor road and ascended through the forest. The route through the firebreak from SH 799 257 is blocked for the most part with fallen trees. From the eastern side of the forest, the route follows the fence north before striking nort-east to the summitdicky bird07/08/2014

RATHER THAN FOLLOW THE NUTTALLS WALK 6.3 WE DROVE UP THE STEEP LANE FROM NEAR RHYDYMAIN AND ALONG THE FOREST ROAD TO WHERE THE BYWAY BECOMES A BRIDLEWAY.

A wet but not too difficult ascent from the forestry track which goes north from SN 796233 (although we accessed the forestry track and parked at SN 796245).Marshsand07/09/2012
From Llanfachreth (SH 75628 22524) - Bwlch Goriwared - Rhobell Fawr West Top - Rhobell Fawr - Dduallt. Steep descent from Rhobell Fawr to Ty-newydd-y-mynydd. From there out-and-back leg to Dduallt through and around forested area. Obvious path through forest, occasionally boggy; mostly pathless once clear of forest. Excellent track from Ty-newydd-y-mynydd back to Llanfachreth.david23020101/04/2012

LDWA: One of our more exciting river crossings!ruthatlast28/08/2011
Up from Cwm Hasgen. Stayed south of the river, and cut through forest at narrowest point. Not such a trial as we thought it'd be. Heavy rain and poor vis throughout.huwthomas20/08/2011

Warm day. No idea really of the route to describe as following orders - but followed the fence line up.Phoenix10/04/2010
Started at road end (787293) and followed north side of Afon Mawddach with a view to cross at the ford. Very difficult crossing, in there is a chance river is in spate, don't bother use forest road on south side.BobKelly07/11/2009

Hacked our way over from Rhobell y Big across bog and forest where the bridleways marked on map have been removed on the ground. Spent 2 hours cursing the Forestry Commission. Boggy mountain considering its so rocky.Father Ted13/09/2008

Parked at SH 7885 2921 We did Nuttal walk 6.3. We got caught out by the river crossing, it was to deep to cross so rather than retreating miles we took boots and socks off and carefully waded across.SteveClay24/08/2008
a wild camp on the banks of the infant afon mawddach then a loop over dduallt and rhobell fawr, some squelchy bits underfoot but a fabulous walk all the samestig_nest10/04/2007

Did Rhobell Fawr first and tricky navigation through the fire breaks in the forest. Head SSE from 802 266, then due S and take right fork to the one the Nuttalls mention but this last is almost completely grown over. Boggy trek back to car at 797 233signyred16/01/2007
With TonyStuart Hyde12/08/2006
Parked at Cwm yr Allt-lŵyd and set off along a track towards a sheep pen where a farmer called over that he would rather be walking than shearing today. In fact the heat was intense and I had left it until half past one to start the walk. Over the Afon Mawddach I met a party on quad bikes, one of whom asked whether I was going to Dduallt and, when I said I was, replied “That’s my mountain, that is.” I left them to their fencing, passed through some disused farm buildings and climbed a switchback from where both summits were visible. The second Afon Mawddach crossing is a ford which can be tricky when the river is in spate, but the dry weather in recent weeks made for a few easy steps today, and soon I had completed the steep climb over grass to Dduallt.peter4lc11/07/2005
2nd visit 16/10/10 - after a round of the Deweys to the north. Rough going on descent while trying to locate where the zig-zag trail through the Bryn Melyn forest starts - further than memory suggested.Smudge01/11/2002
From Rhohball Fawr through the forest and it was torture. Anybody with any sense would have stuck to the rides to escape the spruce to the East side.Eddie12/10/2001

Ddualt and Rhobell Fawr from the SouthPeterD24/05/1987
Excellent, remote summit. The mountain form is simple- a N to S ridge, but the rock and gully scenery on the E side is most impressive, in a wild setting. From Cwm yr allt-lwyd, went onto Rhobell Fawr next.pwheeler25/04/1987
