In our quest to visit remote, rarely-visited peaks in Snowdonia, today we climbed Ddaullt (662 metres), a remote summit to the north-east of Rhobell Fawr in the Arenigs. After taking the minor road from Bronaber on the A470 to the deserted farmhouse at Cwm yr Allt Lwyd, we walked up a good farm track to ford the infant Afon Mawddach river, before climbing onto the North ridge of Ddaullt. A relatively short climb to the summit is guided by a fence on the ridge. The summit views are fantastic, with all the major peaks in Snowdonia being visible, and Bala lake easily seen to the East. A very pleasant day out, mostly in sunshine apart from a brief snow/sleet shower on the way up.
