very difficult to see which point and a map is not much help but walk along the fence to a ladder stile and on your left some 30 yards away is this top. not much but hey ho its a peak to bagAristotle Chip07/10/2016
Aran Fawddwy wildcamp to Drws-y-Nant. In the hot, clear summer weather we had, this was a very colourful and attractive bit of wild, albeit still very boggy. The descent to bwlch with Glasgwm and then to the forest in Cwm-ochr is a mostly horrendous squelch fest but the path is clear enough.Jake99416/08/2016

Drove down to the head of valley, go past chapel and phone box, excellent parking for 40+ cars now at SH 85250 18856, complete with loo! Walked short distance back down road and then lane leading to ford and then good track up to the bwlch to the north of Y Gribin. Climbed this and then the good path to summit cairn of Glasgwym. On to Waun Camddwr and Gwaun y Llwyni.nordicstar12/07/2016
Left bike at top of pass on the A470. Did Waun Camddwr Glasgwm and and finally Pen y bryn fforchog. Forest had been cut down so I didn't think it was easy to follow the nuttalls route. Went down to the pass and cycled back - mainly free wheeling!johnjennison08/06/2016

Approahed from Glasgwm on way to GWaun y Llwyni. Summit north of fence not to the south as shown on map. Parked in Snowdonia National Park car park. Not shown on map but signposted when nearly there. SH 85243 18859. Cwm Cyarch ring from Glasgwm to Pen yr Allt Uchaf. 9.89 mile route with 1080m of ascent.SteveSmith14/03/2016

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
Number four of four summits on this walk. Drizzle then sunny intervals, very windy. Aran Fawddwy (905m), Aran Benllyn (885m), Erw y Ddafad-ddu (872m) and Waun Camddwr (621m) from Cwm Cywarch. Distance = 18km. Average moving speed = 3.6km/h. Time moving = 5:03. Ascent = 1311m.paulnewby8105/06/2015

Up from Cwm Cywarch via Hengwm. Along the ridge to Aran Benllyn and then back to Cwm Cywarch via the waterfalls. Fantastic views. Two real contenders for this summit, each with a few stones piled up, though I stood on many other rocky knolls just in case!ruthatlast02/07/2014

Starting in Cwm Cywarch we ascended steeply to the col between Y Gribin and Glasgwm. We the followed the path across Waun Camddwr to Aran Fawddwy. We descended past Drysgol and down Hengwm.Ginger Dave17/05/2014
Part of an epic Aran Ridge walk starting at Felindre farm near Llanuwchylln, i stopped off at the Eagles pub for supplies and headed out on the ridge visiting, Garth Fawr, Pen-aran, Er w Ddafad-ddhu, Aran Fawddyw and Gwaun Y Llwyni and after exploring the southern ridge (pen main)i dropped down and climbed past the Camddwr stream and up to Waun Camddwr. There were lots of rocky outcrops with stones on them so I had to visit them all to be sure! Lovely views down the valley, Next hill is Glasgwm.Dazingdale07/05/2014
On own. Starting from Cwm Cywarch, southernmost four tops on Nuttalls walk 8.1. Then added walk 8.3. A long hard walk, but really enjoyable in dry sunny conditions.Crib Goch21/04/2014

From Cwm Cywarch (SH 85242 18851) - Pen yr Allt Uchaf - Gwaun y Llwyni - Waun Camddwr - Glasgwm - Llyn y Fign. Very boggy between Waun Camddwr and the foot of Glasgwm, stepping stones & duckboards do help in negotiating the worst bits.david23020126/02/2012

Not a glamorous hill by any stretch of the imagination. BEWARE OF THE PLANKS!!David Gradwell29/08/2009
As part of full Nuttall circuit - the path back to Cwm Cywarch was very boggy and a lot of summer rain (the planks laid over the bog get very slippy in the rain)woodse31/07/2009

First peak of the day, up from Cwm Cywarch.huwthomas10/05/2009
Still in mist on our tour of the southern Arans we almost missed this one. A slight deviation from the path to find a small cairn perched on a bit of a hump.SteveClay04/08/2008

On way to Glasgwm from Aran Fawddwy, rocky bluff not far from path.Aye Jimmy22/04/2008
On our way up Aran Fawddwy when the snow was deep and the bogs were treacherous, we stopped for a break on a rare rocky outcrop a little way from the path in the middle of the morass. Only afterwards did I find we'd accidently bagged a Nuttall! Sorry...wheresthepath13/04/2008
