Parked in layby with free parking on westbound side of A4086 just inside Conwy boundary. The next layby in Gwynedd charges £4.00. Approaching summit from west was drawn south to high area on right but from there could see obvious high point at cairn slightly further north. Lovely clear day with excellent views of previously bagged Carneddau summits to the north.SteveSmith22/04/2016

2nd Summit of the day after on an epic exploration of all the Glyders from Capel Curig to the Pen Y Gwyrd hotel. A simple track from Gallt Yr Ogof leads down and then up to this summit with grandstand view of Tryfan looking onto the Glyder Fach plateaux. Visited both the cairn and the rocky outcrops that appeared to be of similar height. Really nice feel to this summit. I took the track leading down to the lakes eventually meeting the miner's track to drop down onto the flanks of Tryvan. This day I explored all the Glyders, finishing at the Pen Y Gwyrd hotel.Dazingdale07/07/2014
