Ascent of Moel Siabod on 9th September 2009 (with group of Sheffield Ramblers)

View from Pont Cyfyng (looking south west) at Moel Siabod
Afon Llugy - river to north of Moel Siabod
Lower lake - not named
Disused quarry workings in sight
Ascending south west
Lower lake behind
Water filled pit - presumably slate was also extracted from this.
Upper Lake - Llyn y Foel
Swampy area to west of lake to be crossed or avoided by moving closer to a path on the bottom of the mountain slope
Llyn y Foel in view before turning west for further ascent
To west Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) 1085m in centre, Crib y Ddysgl 1065m to right with Crib Goch 921m on ridge below to right.
Possibly Trylan 915m to north west? 6 of us walked from Lake 'Llyn Ogwen' around Trylan the previous day in atrocious windy and rainy conditions - impossible to take photographs.
Looking down to the two lakes passed when ascending
Our party on the summit of Moel Siabod
Fell runner near summit
The downward route NNE towards east end of lake Llynnau Mymbyr
Back to Afon Llugwy
Post climb - photo taken the next day of Moel Siabod  (towards NW) from Castle near Dolwyddelan. We ascended the last 330m mainly from this side
