Where is it? Who is it suitable for? What do I need?
Moel Siabod is very close to Capel Curig in Conwy, North Wales.
It’s the largest single land mass mountain in the Snowdonia National Park.
A guided hike on Moel Siabod is not to be missed, It’s great for hiking and gives a fantastic round trip as well as the option of scrambling up its Southern rib. For those of us who ski, it gives one of the longest ski descents in the park, right form the summit all the way to the Pen y Gwryd Hotel!
We meet in the Bryn Glo free parking area on the A5 just before Capel Curig.
