Wilderness Wales



Moel SiabodLess popular than the main ranges just to the north, the Moelwyns provide great views of those ranges, as well as being surprisingly varied and interesting in its own right. Moel Siabod is the highest summit with spectacular cliffs and a lake below.

The southern part of the range is scarred by huge quarries on the eastern side, yet are surprisingly interesting in spite of that, or maybe even because of that, if you are interested in the history of the area.

Cnicht is an excellent summit which looks very pointy from the southwest, belying the fact that it's actually a ridge. Walter Poucher claimed that this was the best viewpoint in the whole of Snowdonia, giving panoramic views of the area around it.
