Snowdon South Ridge and Moel Cynghorion Details

A long route starting in Rhyd Ddu and ending in Llanberis, though you could well return via the Clogwyn Gwin path to the start. Ascending via the Allt Maenderyn (south) Ridge and descending over Moel Cynghorion which isn’t much of a destination for a single day but an ideal viewpoint to end one.
