Mountain Walking Snowdonia

Popular peaks:

  • Snowdon: The highest (3560ft) and possibly the finest mountain peak south of Scotland. Although busy should not be under estimated.

  • Tryfan: The only peak in Snowdonia where the hands have to be used to reach the summit. A fantastic scramble and easier than it might look.

  • Moel Siabod: Seen from the north Moel Siabod appears as a grassy sloped mountain. This hides a fine rocky ridge on the southerly side. A great easy introductory scramble.

  • Cnicht: The so called “ Matterhorn” of Snowdonia. This is because it appears as a classic mountain shape as seen from the village of Croesor.

  • Carneddau: One of the more remote areas of Snowdonia and even the UK. Over 100 square kms of open mountains rising to almost 3500ft. Less busy than most other areas of the Snowdonia National Park.

  • Glyders: This range is usually accessed from the Ogwen valley, and offers almost alpine scenery. Most peaks rise above 3000ft, with many easy scrambles to gain their summits.
