A very small peak,but can be extremely dangerous due to cliffs. It actually looks very large from the village of Llanddulas at the bottom. Its very difficult to get to the summit from Llanddulas due to the steep slopes, so its best to go from Abergele in the west through Gwrych Castle woods and then up a steep grassy slope. A pillar marks the summit and their are fine views of Snowdonia and the surrounding hills. Considering its extremely small height, it can be very windy at the top. You can also find caves just below the summit.
