Pen yr Helgi Du

Pen yr Helgi Du

Introduction

833m - 2733ft

Pen yr Helgi Du is a mountain peak in the eastern part of the Carneddau in Snowdonia, North Wales.

It lies on the south-eastern flanks of Carnedd Llewelyn, and is linked to Carnedd Llewelyn over the col of Bwlch Eryl Farchog, a knife-edge ridge over the cliffs of Craig Yr Ysfa.

 

 

 

From here the walker can drop down into Cwm Eigiau to the east or to the Ffynnon Llugwy reservoir to the south. Continuing over Pen yr Helgi Du to the east you will reach the even more beautifully named Pen Llithrig y Wrach (the slippery peak of the witch).
