This is one of the events organised as part of Big Spring Camp 2023.

We will be walking along the spectacular Nantlle Ridge, one of the classic Eryri (Snowdonia) walks, which is a succession of 5 peaks overlooking the Nantlle Valley from the south.  Although not as high as its crowded neighbour, Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), each peak is over 600m and affords some fantastic views out towards Anglesey, Caernarfon Bay and the Llyn Peninsula.

This is a challenging mountain walk - it involves some steep climbs and a bit of scrambling, over a total distance of about 15km / 9 miles, so you will need to be reasonably fit for this walk, and be prepared for some exposure on the ridge.

After reaching our 5th summit at Craig Cwn Sillyn, we will double-back a short way before returning via Cwm Dwyfor, along some of the old mine tramways, then through part of Beddgelert Forest, returning to our start point at Rhyd Ddu.

The start point is a relatively long drive from the BSC campsite at Llanrwst, and car-sharing to / from the start point will be necessary.  See below for details.
