Modest winds and cloud around summits. Distance 11.2Km, ascent ~1000m. Day 2 spent mostly in cloud. Ascent of Waun Camddwr (621m), Glasgwm (780m), Pen y Brynfforchorg (685m), and descent to Bwlch Oerddrws. Distance 7.7Km, ascent 373m. Hitch back to car.VirtualMountain26/07/2019
From the car park at the top of the valley north of Dinas Mawddwy. Though farm, up gorge and along ridge.iangalbraith25/07/2019
Challenging but extremely enjoyable walk up from Llanymawddwy. Fantastic waterfall that would look spectacular in full speight. Stunning 360 views once on the ridgeline.Eliza10010/07/2019
Objective of the day done - as we had to get home for school in the morning we left Aran Benllyn for another day. Long descent via the Llaethnant valley.DanMaisieBex23/06/2019

From the car park at the top of the valley north of Dinas Mawddwy. Steeply up towards Glasgwm but we didn’t bother with that so turned right at the top. Continued back via Drysgot and Waun Goch. Generally dry underfoot today but clearly could easily be quite soggy when the boards alongside the fence would be essential.Newton Maximus23/05/2019
10 mile walk from Cwm Croes, up Tir Gofal path from Nant-Y-Llyn farm to Llyn Lliwbran then climbed NW steeply onto the ridge, followed ridge onto Aran Benllyn, Erw Y Ddafad-Ddu and Aran Fawddwy (all bagged previously in 2011) then retraced steps to Erw Y Ddafad-Ddu and descended to Creiglyn Dyfi tarn, up easily onto Foel Hafod-Fynydd then diagonally onto Llechwedd Du, along ridge to Esgeiriau Gwynion, descended to Llechwedd Llyfn, then steep descent back to car in Cwm Croes, perfect sunny/breezy weather, good dry terrain, views from west Coast including the whole of Cardigan Bay to Shropshire. Saw 2 people all day. Later that day drove up to Bwlch Y Groes pass and bagged Foel Y Groes and Moel Y Cerrig Duon, great day.DanTrig15/05/2019
Long walk from Cwm Cywarch around Glasgwm, Waun Camddwr, Aran Fawddwy and Drysgol with Sue and Shelley. Just over 10 miles, 7 hours walking and 1300m of ascent. Didn't see another person all day, amazing day out. Ridiculously windy, positively dangerous on some exposed parts of Glasgwm and Aran Fawddwy. Great to return to the scene of the first date between Sue and I (16 years ago). View stupendous, as always.Cangarwbach13/04/2019
Over Esgeiriau Gwynion up the central ridge. Fine sunny day but a long way back to Bwlch y GroesN.Morters11/04/2019
During a long weekend in Wales with J, Shaky & Smithy on a sunny but cold day. After bagging Glasgwm on a filthy day a few months earlier, this was a return bout on the Arans. Parked in the car park at the end of the road at Cwm Cywarch & followed RoW through the farm & up the steep cwm. Cut off the corner at the top heading due N to meet the fence & the quite boggy path which improves as it gains height. Great views W along the way & then from summit. Descended SE then E over narrowing ridge to Drysgol with great views again. Gradually dropped into the cwm via the path & back to the farm va the RoW. This is the best way to do the circuit of the cwm. A cracking walk & well worth the Trail 100 listing!NotReallyABagger30/09/2018
Accent from PandyDargydoof26/07/2018
Started ascent the classical way from village of LLanuwchllyn. Evening mix of showers and sun. Camped at cloud level just under Moel Ffennig at around 550m. Next morning clear except for massif of Aran Fawddwy itself. Back down in cloud following the fence to just below Glasgwm and thence on to Dollgellau on paths and minor roads.peter17/07/2018

A massive six hour,ten mile county top walk from the free car park in Llanuwchllyn. Second visit was a 18 mile walk with 5500ft of accent combining the Arran Ridge and Southern Arrans following nuttalls route.Pen y Allt Uchaf, Gwaun Lydan, Aran Fawddwy, Wrw y Ddafad-ddu, Aran Benllyn, Gwaun y Llwyni, Waun camddwr, Glasgwm and Pen y Bryn-fforchog.The woodland beneath the last top has been completely felled and so the return route Nuttall suggests is really difficult.From the free car park at the end of the minor road in Cwm Cywarch three miles north of Dinas MawddwyWAYNE ROWLETT26/08/2017

A note about trig point etiquette. Don't hang around standing on the base of the trig point trying to get a signal, checking your answer phone messages and making calls before hanging around even longer to take selfies when there are people around clearly waiting for a brief moment on the trig point who have been waiting longer than you. Very poor!tumpawumpa17/04/2017

Afternoon walk up from Llanuwchllyn and camped just below the summit. A mild, clear night with a light breeze to keep the midges at bay - perfect conditions. Quite a mountain this one, such height and relative isolation along with steep rocky slopes, it's one to savour and long for again. The views, from Shropshire to Llyn to Brecon, were also outstanding. Let the masses have Snowdon, let us have Fawddwy.Jake99415/08/2016

A recce on circuit of Cym Cywarch for a final Marilyn. Looks a good top, nice approach from the CP at head of southern vally past Glasgym and Sims to top. Fine stone trig. Mists cleared as we approached. Wales now complete.nordicstar12/07/2016
A nice walk round from the head of the valley.jenx12/07/2016
Climbed from Llanuwchllyn to Aran Fawddwy along ridge path, returning by same route and bagging Pen-Aran, Aran Benllyn and Erw y Ddafad-ddu along the way (5.5 hours). Superb cloudless warm late Spring day. Dry underfoot, though path looks like it could be boggy at times. Views stretching from Carneddau to Brecon Beacons, and from Lleyn Peninsula to the Shropshire Hills. Superb rugged mountain ridge - similar to Cader Idris minus the crowds. Despite being a Bank Holiday, saw nobody until I reached summit of Aran Fawddwy at 1.15pm!jamessteel10030/05/2016

Glorious 12th. Our penultimate Welsh County Top - Aran Fawddwy, Merioneth. Remote and fantastic. Sat in the car waiting for the rain to stop - and then just went for it anyway. We did get drenched a couple of times, but the skies cleared and the climb was one of the best with amazing views in all directions - an incredible variety of landscape and scenery. Little known Aran Fawddwy is almost due west from Loughborough and is the highest point in Britain that far south. It is a stunning peak with a plunging 1000ft drop to Creiglyn Dyfi, the Irish Sea away in the distance and lots of the peaks that we have climbed during 2015 in view. The two walkers whom we met at the top were the only people we encountered for the whole 7.5 miles. A bit different from Snowdon.callumorr12/09/2015

ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL DAY WITH GOOD VIEWS. FOLLOWED NUTTALLS WALK 8.1 UP THE STEEP GRASS ONTO PEN Y ALLT UCHAF, THEN EASILY OVER GWAUN LYDAN. A STIFF CLIMB ONTO ARAN FAWDDWY, THEN EASY RIDGE WALKING TO ERW Y DDAFAD DDU AND ARAN BENLLYN WITH GOOD VIEWS OVER BALA, RHINOGS AND ARENIGS. RETURNED AVOIDING SUMMITS TO DESCEND STEEPLY AND THEN OVER ROUGH GROUND TO GWAUN Y LLWYNI AND EASILY TO WAUN CAMDDWR. DECIDED TO TAG ON WALK 8.3 TO AVOID RE-ASCENT AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF FINE WEATHER AND LONG JUNE DAYLIGHT. A VERY HARD CLIMB ONTO GLASGWM, THEN EASY RIDGE TO FINISH ON PEN Y BRYN FFORCHOG. HOWEVER, THE FOREST HAS BEEN FELLED AND IT WAS VERY TOUGH GOING TRYING TO FOLLOW THE PREVIOUS RIDES UNTIL THE EASY DESCENT OF THE ZIGZAG - 10.5 HOURS WALKING.BURGESS15/06/2015

On an epic Aran ridge traverse from Llanuwchylln to Dolgellau (15.5 miles), starting at Felindre Farm (i got as far as the A470 and got picked up by my hosts from the B&B Ty Seren as they wanted to get out). Lovely rocky route up and the mist momentarily cleared enough to take a few shots of Creiglyn Dyfi. Very very windy on top though.

3 foot of snow around summit. No other footprints - think we were the first up there in some time. Reasonable visibility, although a little more snow was falling at times. Flask of Talisker 10yo at the trig tasted like heaven!wheresthepath13/04/2008
Made the summit in intense cloud using compass. Was our third attempt. will see the views in the summer.oshrew08/02/2008

Big horseshoe walk from Dinas Mawddwy. Unfortunately complete cloud cover at 700m.rbayfield30/01/2005
Parked almost at the end of the road running from Dinas Mawddwy through Cwm Cywarch. It was a steep and winding climb to the col between the Arans and Glasgwm. Many of the rocks were far more slippery than would be expected at this time of the year, mainly due no doubt to the heavy rain, and I was already apprehensive about the descent, which would be delightful in drier conditions. When the path finally levelled out and Aran Fawddwy came into view, I faced a two-mile trudge to the summit, much of it flat and across bog. The duckboards which had been helpfully placed there eased the passage, but even so some were underwater and slippery. In no time at all it was raining heavily, the temperature had plummeted and I seriously thought about turning back. The rain soon eased enough for me to make the summit, where the view was good, though Snowdon was still in cloud. Poucher’s book shows a concrete trig point but this may have been destroyed, as the one on the summit now is sandstone.peter4lc21/08/2004

Didi with Taff from Fawnog Fawr over Glasgwm. Fell in stream at bottom - soaked through but carried on in freezing rain and wind. Not the weather to be out, making it all the more enjoyable. Great hill and much neglected.robphys25/10/2002
Although a touch of cloud came over whilst at the top, it always stayed high. The summit of Snowdon was in view as was the whole of Snowdonia.garyhoney31/08/2002

First climbed from Talardd, today: via Llyn Lliwbran and Aran Benllyn, down via Drws Bach and Creigllyn Dyfi. Just 5.5h on a very warm, hazy day. I've got to know these mountains well, in winter they are as forgiving as any mountains above 2900 ft can be. Once walked all along the main ridge from Bala. Logs for the Marilyns reflect these different visits. This E side was supposed to be denied to walkers in 1987 but this denial of the best side of the Arans was already withering then, now there is good access, parking, and so many fine, wild ways up this wonderful range.pwheeler23/04/1987
