It was not moderate at all it is hard... worth it but hard..... sooo hard and technical. It’s climbing near the top but be careful because it does get tricky and there is no track at the top you need to make your own track. It is easier to go up than go back down the same way you went up. If you are going to do it climb up the steep way and go down the south way with is dodgy but at least not so steep. The view was amazing! KEEP IN MIND THAT Worth it but HARD!!! START EARLY! It will take you a long time to do it because it’s a slow climb!

Unfortunately, I could not finish the trail because the path on the mountain was not clear and I could not get any further. Everything looked the same. You had to climb a lot, which I felt rather than "difficult". Otherwise, the view was very nice. Miscellaneous: free parking (toilets and café about 1 mile away)

Fantastic walk/scramble. At the moment this is my favourite part of Snowdonia for getting outdoors. I'm surprised it is only a moderate those - I must be getting past it
