Pen Llithrig y Wrach (Pen Thlee-rig oo-rath - slippery peak of the witch) one of the more colourful names of any British mountain, translating as 'slippery peak of the witch', perhaps in reference to the boggy conditions underfoot, or because of the resemblance of its pointed profile to an archetypal witch's hat.

It is one of the four Marilyns that make up the Carneddau range.
