Y Garn 3107ft (947m)

Y Garn makes a pleasant half day excursion from Ogwen cottage. Mountaineers traversing the 14 peaks will pass over its summit between Elidir Fawr and the Glyderau.

Its summit is marked by a shelter cairn and it's a good spot on a nice day to survey what has been achieved and what is to be done. To the north the Carneddau are beckoning while behind lies the summits of the Snowdon massif.
