Third visit with 6th form school friends during 1981 to Tweets holiday cottage nr Deniolen. Bed at 3am, up at 9.30am for a solo (only one keen) walk up Snowdon (for 2nd time) along the Moel Eilio ridge. Took in this smaller off route peak first. (probably because it had a trig pillar so seemed significant)Chris Pearson18/09/1981
