From Llanfachreth taking row, track and path to Rhobell Fawr after diversion to Cerniau, then descended and climbed Rhobell Ganol. From there it was over rough wet ground to Rhobell-y-big before dropping down to Afon Ceirw which was crossed at the wall which neatly took that out of play. The forest tracks to outward route.SS26/12/2016

Continuation of walk from Rhobell y big. Walked south down between crags to a wide boggy bwlch, then up by sheep-tracks, visiting both the north and south tops. Walk continued to Rhobell Fawr.Man of Kernow124/08/2014
3400 and 3390 together. Parked as others to NE. Good path then gets worse after about half way to 3400 - a fine hill - approach seems less rocky from the SW. Some bog to 3390 but not too bad. Tried to find the path to NE so that I could follow it S to 2 other Deweys but the path is a fiction. Spent a good half hour trying to find it in heather and bog. Have 1:50 map on GPS and was standing on the 'path' up to ankles in bog. Clear weather no path anywhere. Nightmare. Gave up and returned to car.destaylor27/03/2014
