Crimpiau In Pictures: One of Snowdonia’s Hidden Gems
16th November 2016
Snowdonia has no shortage of beautiful views, but one of the very best is from the summit of Crimpiau, just a short walk from village Capel Curig. Crimpiau (470m) is a small mountain, which packs a mighty scenic punch. A short walk from the Moel Siabod café is one of the most spectacular panoramic views in Snowdonia.
Crimpiau is a fantastic walk for all abilities offering views over the main Snowdonia mountain ranges. If time is short and you want to take in some big Snowdonia views then we highly recommend this short walk to the summit of Crimpiau. For those wanting a longer route then there are several route options from Crimpiau. From Crimpiau you can head down to the beautiful Llyn Crafnant or for the more adventurous head north over Craig Wen and Creigiau Gleision with a circuit of Llyn Cowlyd.
If you have climbed Crimpiau then we would love to hear about it. Please leave some comments below and tell us about our Crimpiau experiences.
The view from the summit is impressive with the steep cliffs and peaks of the Glyderau mountain range with Tryfan dominating the skyline take centre stage. The Carneddau look spectacular with their long ridges and broad peaks just inviting...
