At 872m Moel Siabod just loses out on a place amongst the Welsh 3000's. However, its prominent position, standing away from the other main Snowdonia ranges, nevertheless gives it the feel of a "proper mountain". If you were going to draw a mountain you may well draw Moel Siabod!

Depending on the weather and the desires of the group we have a couple of options for our ascent. We can begin through a forest, or we could take a direct path straight up via deserted quarry buildings. Either way, we will ultimately find ourselves at the foot of an impressive ridge which offers walking or scrambling to the summit. Don't let the idea of scrambling put you off - this is a great place to try it for the first time as a few steps to the left will immediately find yourself back on two feet!

From the summit (where if the weather is kind the views are truly superb) we will descend the gentle slope toward Plas y Brenin, before heading to a pub of cafe for well earned refreshments.

Why not make a weekend of it?
