13 mile circular taking in Cerniau, Rhobell Fawr and Dduallt, arrived at trig 3 minutes before cloud came down, got a quick glimpse of the view, cloud cleared later that day once we got to Dduallt. Saw 3 people all day.

Lovely linear route from the CP adjacent Llanfachreth school, just dodging the skirly skies sweeping from Snowdon range to the Arans. After a coffee and cake at Dolgellau went back for a walk round the lanes and below fellow Marilyn Foel Offrwm.

Day 1 of our 2017 team meet located just NE of Dolgellau. Walked in from Rhydymain using the forestry track from Cae'r Defaid. Heading west for the summit from the forestry track their are some stiles to avoid climbing the well built stone walls. Very Windy day with limited visibility. Traditional pillar with plug missing. Return route headed South and walked down path parallel to Afon Melau via Blaenau. approx. 13.5km.

Accessed from the south, parking at the end of the minor road and then walking north to the recently rebuilt sheep fold and then following the path alongside the wall all the way to the summit. An excellent and easy climb with great views from the summit. Dduallt looked a difficult onwards walk so left that for the following day. Only five more Welsh Nuttall's left to climb (that is after we climbed Dduallt).

Bleak and damp misty day at the top so regret the low score, especially as the views to the west improved steadily on the return trip. Trig appeared out of the mist in the last 20 to 30 yards.

I walked up here, after staying the night at Penrhos Isaf bothy, via Llanfachreth. I was not at my fittest due to the long hard winter and needed to stop a few times on my way up. The cloud was down and, this being only my second specific visit to a trig, I forgot to photograph the flush bracket. All in all for me this is definitely one to go back to again another day.

Walked in from the S on track that runs through the woods at Ffridd y Castell. Then follow fenceline NW and stone wall to within 100m of pillar. Excellent 360 views taking in some of Mid/N Wales finest scenery. My third visit but probably not my last, a really lovely location. Pillar is stonebuilt and in good condition.

Chunky stone pillar definitely showing some damage. Slightly odd shape may give the impression of leaning. Some graffiti etched on pillar & spider. No plug. Public. Access Land. Snowdonia National Park. Easy to reach from the south [Rhydymain] by following the steep lane to its end & then continuing along the forest road to the col. From there, a steep & not always distinct path goes up left, basically following the wall & fence, to a wide grassy summit. A real mountain trig on one of Wales's most underrated mountains.

Have waited 30 years to ascend this one. Well worth the wait too. Can see all the other peaks that have been ascended in that time when Rhobell Fawr has been able to be picked out. Great ascent from the west following the stone wall from the track.

Welsh summit 99 of 188 in 2006 well on target for the year and nice to look around and think that most of what can be seen south from here today I have been on the top of this year. Trig IMHO is still in good shape, sure the plug has gone but there is no other visible damage. I suspect the lean noted elsewhere has been there for the day it was built. Lots of options for ascent but I favour a southern base combined with nearby Dduallt but very boggy today

Execellent panoramic view - surrounded by many familier Snowdonian peaks. Obvouslly a quiet spot as no trace of any other footprints in lovly crisp snow. I would of said that the trig has developed a lean, but the spider does in fact seem to be over the sighting holes. Plug is missing. Furthe details and photos to follow.

Apparantly a rebuild, hence the high number. Originally S8227. A fine hill with a good view of the Mawddach. Sadly on my second visit I saw nothing but the inside of a cloud. Visit 1 was a backpack from Llyn Tegid to the coast.
