Best Guidebook Walks 1 – Nantlle Ridge

This is the Steve Ashton Nantlle Ridge route from our article on My Favourite Guidebook Walks.

The classic Snowdonia ridge walk without doubt, and he provides the vanilla version from Rhyd Ddu over to Garnedd Coch, over all the best bits and omitting that little upstart – Mynydd Graig Goch. The beauty of this book, and I cannot see why others haven’t followed suit, is that there’s a reasonably clear description of the route and, the inspiration of a personal account of each walk. Read this in mid 80s, did the walk early 90s.

In this route, he described the walk across the Nantlle Ridge in Snowdonia.

The Route can be viewed in the guidebook –  Ridges of Snowdonia  by Steve Ashton and published by Cicerone.
