The summit, just over 2,000ft
Mynydd Graig Goch (Min-ith Grey-g Gock - Red Rocky Mountain) is the western end peak of the Nantlle Ridge and is a subsidiary summit of Craig Cwm Silyn. It is also the most westerly 2,000 ft peak in Wales.

For many years it was excluded from lists of the Welsh 2,000 ft hills due to a spot height of 609m on OS maps. However, this changed in 2008. After years of speculation, a group of hillwalkers carried out a precise GPS survey of the peak, measuring the absolute height as 609.75 m (2000.49 ft).

The summit is boulder strewn, crowned by several tors of rock, of which one is the true summit.
