A cairn caps the summit
Glasgwm (Glas-gum - Blue Valley) forms part of the Aran range in southern Snowdonia. It is one of the three Marilyns that make up the range, the others being Aran Fawddwy and Esgeiriau Gwynion.

Craig Cywarch makes up the south face of Glasgwm. Its crags are very popular with rock climbers. A mountaineering club hut is found at the foot of the cliffs.

Glasgwm's summit sits on a large rocky knoll marked by a cairn. The high altitude lake of Llyn y Fign lies adjacent to the summit and is one of the largest bodies of water adjacent to a 700m+ summit in England and Wales.
