Crimpiau, (pronounced locally ‘Crimp – ee – a’, and meaning hard sharp edge; ridge, spur; ledge), is located between Capel Curig and Llyn Crafnant and is a stunning viewpoint despite being only 475m (1558′) high. Photographer Nick Livesey writes in his book ‘Photographing the Snowdonia Mountains’, “Being little more than a minor incident on a long knobbly ridge, lowly Crimpiau harbours a secret that few would suspect from below”.

We’ll be taking the minibus to Capel Curig, then taking a scenic walk back to Trefriw, making a small detout to ascend Crimpiau. And Crimpiau aside, it’s a great walk with lovely views from start to finish.

We’ll be back in time for our now-legendary Cake Fest at 4 p.m.!

Duration:  All day.  Please bring a packed lunch.
