Moel Siabod was the first mountain I climbed when I first arrived to begin my course at Bangor University in September 2014.
Moel Siabod stands isolated from the other mountains of Snowdonia, separated from the Glyderau by the Mymbyr Valley, while the Moelwynion range rises up further to the south.
The lower plains of the mountain bare the hallmarks of old Welsh slate industry. Old stone mine buildings lie abandoned and vast slate piles litter the pathway up the mountain.
Halfway up the mountain is the lake Llyn-y-foel, a lake with origins in Welsh mythology, above the lake is the 800ft Daear Ddu ridge which forms the main pathway onto the summit.
The prize of Moel Siabod however is the view from the summit, from its peak you can see almost the entirety of Northern Snowdonia.
