As I descended from Snowdon, I decided to climb Moel Cynghorion from the Rangers path. Follow path to left of fence, over stile to the corner of the field. The summit is the corner post. Awesome 360 views of Wales's greatest mountains on show. To descend, follow fence towards Llyn Cwellyn and pick up path to Moel Ellio. Turn left onto this path and descend to Rangers Path, whereby you can go back to the car park or climb Snowdon if not already done so. This was a more rewarding climb than Wales's highest mountain simply for the brilliant views. Need a clear day something that rarely happens high up in Snowdonia.giant_hiker03/06/2019
