Details

Yr Aran ('The Peak' in English) is a 2450 feet/747 metre high mountain peak on a ridge radiating south from Snowdon, with beautiful views of the summit of Snowdon, Moel Hebog and the Nantlle Ridge.

Although no paths are marked on maps, the ascent is easily made as a detour from the Rhyd Ddu path or the Watkin Path up Snowdon. Yr Aran is part of what's known as 'The Snowdon Massif', one of the three mountain groups in Snowdonia to include mountains over 3,000 feet (914 m) high.
