you walk past the lake on your right hand side and past the ruined church that’s been photographed to death and on up through the abandoned slate mines then between the 2 massive holes dug into the mountain up to the summit. it’s where i take non-walkers as it’s an odd landscape with lots of stops to look at strange things like the slate works and the old spoil tips and tunnels. better than a foggy slog up glyder fachmark90Member
A nice less travelled route (that’s not circular and therefore best with two cars) is Carnedd Dafydd from Bethesda up Crib Lem (grade 1 scramble, same as tryfan) then along to Carnedd Llyewelyn, then drop down to Ogwen valley /A5.
Moel Siabod from Capel Curig side is also usually a nice quiet walk.Posted 4 years agoElShalimoMember
Nantlle RidgePosted 4 years ago
Put a car at each end and do it as a linear walk. Its about 7 miles with lots of gentle up & down after the initial ascent from Rhyd-Du. It really is one of the best walks in Wales.
The ridge is west of the biggest hills and a bit lower so tends to get better weather. The walk along the ridge is lovely and the views of Snowdonia, Lleyn Peninsula, Anglesey and Tremadoc Bay are wonderful
Plus it’s a lot quieter than the usual honey-pots so you’ll get to enjoy it

heading up there this weekend with some mates for some walking and beer drinking. would like to go up some new peaks, so anyone got a recommendation? In the past alway seem to end up going one these three, to please other group members.
Lots of good calls – hardest part will be choosing rather than finding where to go 😀
I’d take Glyder Fach/Fawr over Carnedd Dafydd/Llewellyn as they’re a lot more interesting up top.
Always really enjoy Moel Siabod too – there’s a good scramble which can be as tricky or easy as you want to make it. Also, its location means you get great views of the whole area which you don’t always have when you’re right in the middle of it.
Lots of insipration HERE by the wayPosted 4 years ago
