Thanks to Trevor Mose for adding this peak.

An isolated peak divided from its neighbours by two deep valleys. Ascents are possible throughout the year and include some exposed and airy scrambles through shattered crags on the south side and a dank cirque on the north face. Two other routes present easier alternatives. Views from the summit include Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa - 1085m) in the east, the Nantlle Ridge to the south and views west out across the Irish sea.
