A popular venue which, because of its isolated position at the N. end of the Moelwyni, affords a marvellous view of the Snowdon Horseshoe and the Glyderau Mountains. The easiest route starts at Plas y Brenin Outdoor Centre in Capel Curig and rises through the Coed Brynegan woods above Llynnau Mymbyr lakes before ascending the northern flank of the mountain. A far more exiting route begins at Pont Gyfyng and follows the Foel Quarry track to Llyn y Foel corrie. Its backwall, the Daear Ddu ridge, affords an excellent scrambling route to the summit. Time required 3-4 hours for the round trip.
