Black Mixen (Welsh: Y Domen Ddu) is a subsidiary summit of Rhos Fawr or Great Rhos in the Radnor Forest. The summit is large peat bog plateau. The summit is marked with a cairn, and is next to a radio transmitter and its building.[1]

Black Mixen is the only Nuttall to have a communications mast (a radio transmitter) on its summit .[2] To the east is Bache Hill, to the south are the Black Mountains, to the west is the Great Rhos plateau.
