Crimpiau from Capel Curig Details
For the height, this is one of the best viewpoints in Eryri. They’re uninterrupted down towards Tryfan and Ogwen in one direction, whilst the Snowdon Horseshoe fills the other. You just don’t know where to look!
It’s an ideal short walk from Capel Curig if you’ve got a spare half day or for those lazy afternoons, where you can just take your time on the summit. For more challenge you can couple it with an ascent of Creigiau Gleision and return via Llyn Cowlyd.
Even if it’s only about 470m high and the route only 6km, this is some seriously hilly ground. Passing the boggy Llyn Coryn, it’s difficult to believe how close you still are to Capel Curig yet you feel like you’re in real wilderness.
