The stony top of Creigiau Gleision
Creigiau Gleision (Creg-ee-i Glee-sion - Blue Rocks) is the easternmost of the high Carneddau and is separated from the others by Llyn Cowlyd. The mountain has three peaks, hence perhaps its plural name.

The most southerly peak is the highest, at 678 metres, and the O.S. map also marks the northerly peak (some ½ mile distant) at 634 metres. Between these two lie a middle peak, of a height between the outer two, but cairnless and unmarked on the map.

Creigiau Gleision affords splendid views in all directions, including northwards to the coast, and down the Ogwen Valley and Dyffryn Mymbyr towards Snowdon.
