[Mountaineer Elizabeth (Aged 7 and 3/4) enjoying a climb near Daear Ddu, Moel Siabod on Saturday 25th May 2013., 2 kb]The route begins by Llyn y Foel to the east of Moel Siabod's summit. The bog by Llyn y Foel can be avoided by walking further up to the back of the cwm and taking a convenient terrace around to the start of the ridge. A path avoids difficulties but a lot of scrambling can be had by seeking out the best rock. The ridge emerges by the trig point.

Bit of snow and hail on the ridge but not much. Missed the start so headed up the face then joined it further up.

Most definitely not in winter conditions today, even though there was a little mushy snow about. No need for any sort of spikes or an axe. Great scramble though, but a little too escapable and too many easy options for it to earn any stars.

Scrambled on a hot day from Dolwyddelan. Once out of the forest I stuck to the stream bed to the llyn, which with the ridge gave about 500m of easy broken scrambling. Very enjoyable.

A really nice scramble. Barely grade 1 if you stick to the path but there's plenty of opportunity to make it harder. Returning via the main ridge makes a lovely round trip.

Nice ridge - have to seek out the scrambling to make it even a Grade 1. Would be ideal for a newcomer to scrambling as can pick and choose rock.
