This ridge separates Cwm Idwal from Cwm Cneifion. Approach along the path from Cwm Idwal or by a climb/scramble on the Idwal Slabs. A path attempts to avoid the rock and many scrambling lines are possible. There are steep walls to the right of the crest that offer grade 2 and 3 options but some of the rock is loose/vegetated. The ridge finishes on Glyder Fawr's summit plateau.
