Garnedd Ugain


3495 ft (1065 m) in height and sometimes referred to as "Crib-y-Ddysgl", Garnedd Ugain is a mountain that forms part of the Snowdon Horseshoe. It is the second highest peak in Wales and is located south-east of Llanberis just to the north of Snowdon itself.

Both Garnedd Ugain and Crib-y-Ddysgl appear on the Ordnance Survey maps of the area. The name Crib-y-Ddysgl refers to the east ridge whilst the summit is Garnedd or Carnedd Ugain. Crib y Ddysgl is the peak's original name and was recorded as such centuries before 'Garnedd Ugain' came into existence.
