Shelter cairn on the summit of Cyfrwy
Cyfrwy (Cuv-roo-wy) is a subsidiary summit of Cadair Idris and lies to the west. It is often climbed with Cadair Idris by taking the Pony Path. The summit is bare an rocky and marked with a cairn.

The north and east face has large cliffs. A rock climb/extreme scramble known as the Cyfrwy ridge is found here. This ridge is very steep and rope and rock climbing skills will be needed. To the east is Tyrrau Mawr and Craig-y-llyn, while to the south is Craig Cwm Amarch.
