/ Big Mountain Days In North Wales
Beddgelert Parish Boundary
Welsh 1000m Peaks
Paddy Buckley Round
Capel to Nant Mor via the boundary ridge
Pedol Peris/Peris horseshoe fell race route
Cwm Pennant Horseshoe.
Half hight circuit of Snowdon going into each cwm via climbs and scrambles of your choice. One of the best days out in Wales.
I had a good half day scrambling up Parson's Nose/Arete, round Snowdon to Llywedd, up Slanting Buttress Ridge and back to Pen y Pass. It would take you all day if you roped up.
I can recommend an extended trip to the climbing wall at plas y brenin followed by some cake at petes eats???
When ya thinkin of going moley joley??
COuld be in for some cornishman scaring!!
Cheers guys for all these brilliant suggestions.
Eastern arete as a start to the Nantlle Ridge, wander over the ridge to Cwm Silyn, down and up Outside Edge to return along the ridge.
In the same area Angel Pavement on Mynydd Mawr over the top and down to come up Adam Rib and back over Mynydd Mawr.
Walk to Clogwyn y Tarw for a route / scramble. From top go up to Sub Cneifion Rib. Down for a route on the Idwal Slabs or the scramble beside them. Up onto the upper cliff of Glyder Fawr, descend Senior's Ridge and go up Cneifion Arete and on up the Gribin Ridge. That's about 700 metres of scrambling / climbing with a whole variety of potential grades to operate at( V. Diff to Es ). You can add crags / routes to suit such as Bochlwyd Buttress, Glyder Fach Main Cliff, Holly Tree Wall, Continuation Wall and Clogwyn Du.
The Milestone Buttress leads up to a possible 600 metre plus combination of scrambling / climbing on the West Face of Tryfan. The Ogwen guidebook page 125 as some nice options.
A route on Dinas Mot, on to Cyrn Las and then Clogwyn Ddsygl. Could even pick up a route on Crib Goch on the way down.

unless the OP is an experienced climber/mountaineer, this is a poor suggestion. Craig yr Ogof is notoriously hard for route finding but it is a fantastic place if you have the confidence!

Only routes on the nose can be tricky to follow; Outside Edge is as easy as most of the longer VD routes in Wales. I'd agree that Angel Pavement/Adam Rib could be a harder proposition but at least its a good test of route finding and general fitness without following any of the usual hackneyed suggestions.
