Startling, entertaining and deeply satisfying, Cnicht is a fine, sharp peak in central Snowdonia whose ascent involves a fine scramble onto a compact summit. Its puncturing profile is a stirring sight from the roadside, and its location – among the surreal, historic ruins of the Cwm Croesor mine workings -– makes a circuit of Cnicht a unique way to spend an afternoon.

Best route: leave from Croesor, choose any route that takes in the mine ruins of Cwm Croesor; they are well worth a detour.
