Since moving to Wales this Mountain was the first I'd laid my eyes on as I cycled to Betws for work the first time I was blown away at this Shark fin popping out above the valley.
so with a break in the weather I thought I'd take my family for a walk up Moel Siabod from Pont Cyfyng.
the first section was a good paved path that quickly turned into a land rover track and then over to a lovely Plateau with Views to the Southern and Eastern Carneddau and the Glyders
we intended on heading up the N ridge and then descending by the same route but we just followed the tourist path up the hill and found ourselves on the quarry side and decided to go up the SE ridge but we were reluctant as we had our Daughter with us so we were not up for down climbing the SE ridge at all.
we had a nice wander off path around Llyn Y Foel before heading up the SE ridge.
so my wife was raging with me at this point as she's never been on a scramble and I had our 18 month old daughter on my back so we had to be careful. I was just hoping that my wife would enjoy her first ever scramble but she was to concerned about the baby to enjoy so I did easy route finding and she followed reluctantly.
starting to get tired now and glad that the climbing is over, Summit is reached and picnic was had the Summit shelter was welcomed as the wind was picking up and with more high winds due Thursday they were starting to come in.
after a pleasant walk down with the wind picking up and the clouds coming in the Highway was welcomed and we had a whole 3 minutes to wait for or bus.
thanks for reading

Have you been forgiven yet for the scrambling route?!
