7.3 miles, total ascent of 910m, fairly scrambly walk, possible icey / winter conditions

Moel Siabod is one of those mountains famed for its perfect outlying position giving it excellent panoramic views to higher mountains. The views to the Snowdonia, Glyderrau and Carneddau ranges from Moel Siabod are awesome.

This is a fairly challenging mountain walk with over 910m of total ascent, near the top is scrambley, added the time of year will make this a great but tough day out.  This is only recommended for experienced walkers who have done fairly big mountains before and understand what a scramble is, if your unsure these videos show a similar route.

It has an impressive pointy profile which drivers on the A5 often mistaken for Snowdon. This walk absolutely typifies Snowdonia's ruggedness and shows the walker fine examples of its fascinating industrial past with a walk through the old Rhos Slate Quarry ruins.

The route reaches the stunning and wild Llyn y Foel and then takes the walker up a fun and exciting scramble of its impressive Deaer Ddu south east ridge.
