Cnicht from Croesor is one of those essential hill walking routes to include on your Snowdonia Itinerary, and it certainly deserves better than a simple up and down. Cnicht is much better than that!

Often combined with Moelwyn Mawr and Bach that may be too strenuous, so this option continues along the long summit ridge towards Llyn yr Adar. You then descend to Bwlch y Rhosydd Quarry and continue downhill towards Cwm Croesor to complete the circuit.
