Moel Siabod via Daear Ddu Ridge (Grade 1 scramble)
2 people attending
4 places left
Moel Siabod is a vastly underrated mountain but enjoys fantastic views over the Moelwynion, Snowdon range and much of the Glyders and Carneddau. We’ll be ascending via the Daear Ddu ridge, although this is technically a grade 1 scramble there is a path to the side so if you don’t feel like scrambling you can take the easier path for the most part. As such, this is a great introduction to scrambling!
Enjoy wonderful views from the summit before descending the main path towards Capel Curig. We’ll then follow the Afon Llugwy back to the cars via coffee and cake at Siabod Cafe (Url: https://www.moelsiabodcafe.co.uk/). The last part of the walk is beautiful riverside path taking you past “Cobdens Falls”, a grade 5 kayak route when in spate.
