Crimpiau, Capel Curig, Snowdonia (Ep #133)

Mar 19, 2020


At last, I am back in the mountains of Snowdonia for some landscape photography. In this video I take a short easy hike from the North Wales village of Capel Curig to the summit of Crimpiau. This is, by Snowdonia standards, a very low peak at only 475 m. But its strategic position and ease of access is a perfect location for landscape photographers to get panoramic views across the whole of the northern Snowdonia ranges. For those less mobile or worried about the dangers of hiking to the high ridges, this is a great introduction to hiking in Snowdonia and still gives you a good flavour of how it feels to reach the summit of a mountain and enjoy sweeping views.

I’m often asked about the equipment I use. You'll now find details of most of it on my: Gear Page.

Unfortunately I can only leave my most recent video images up in full resolution, so those accompanying this video have now been removed.

Only my best work is shown (compressed) on my PORTFOLIO page.
