The top of Mynydd Perfedd with the main Glyders beyond
Mynydd Perfedd (Min-ith Perv-eth - Middle Mountain) forms part of the Glyderau.

Between it and Carnedd y Filiast, there are dramatic cliffs to the east, including the famous Atlantic Slab, a vast expanse of layered slab popular with climbers. It is a fossilised sea bed that has been tilted over millions of years.

The summit has a shelter cairn, offering good views of Foel-goch's north-eastern face, and the Carneddau.
