This is a slight variation on the walk up Garn and Tryfan from last year, but includes an alternative ascent route...
Cnicht may only be 689m in height, but is one of the most popular hills in Snowdonia – for good reason!
Start and Finish: Croesor.
Facilities: Toilets and cafe (we've yet to see it open though)
Hazards: Some steep sections and navigation can be tough once off the summit.
None to Croesor. Your best bet is to walk in from Nanmor, where the Sherpa stops.
Parking: Car park in Croesor

Walk up Cnicht from Croesor Circuit
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.
