With Kevin and Jenny after Pavey Ark. A nothing top this one - just high point of the moor. The actual crag to the SW, which has a ring contour, would have been a more worthy inclusion on the Synge list IMO. I made the high point NY 26784 08251Crib Goch30/09/2015

Crossed this one some 45+ years ago. The old 1 inch OS map, the one with 3D shading, had the hill named as Martcrag Moo which, had us all making cow noises as we passed over it. The stupidity of youth!moorsman19/09/1999
