    With its height of 3.209 feet (978 meters), Pen Yr Ole Wen is the ninth summit of the Welsh 3000s and the first to ascend of the Carneddau Ridge. Two trails lead to the summit, the first, much steeper, trail starts at the Youth Hostel. The second more comfortable trail starts at the Glan Dena Llyn Ogwen.

    With a height of 978 meters, Pen Yr Ole Wen is the ninth summit of the Welsh 3000s and the first you climb on the Carneddau ridge. Two paths lead up to the summit, the first, much steeper path, starts directly at the hostel. The second and more comfortable route begins at the Glan Dena refuge on the eastern shore of Lake Llyn Ogwen.
