Llechog, is a top of Crib y Ddysgl on the Snowdon massif in Wales. It is the top of a long crest of cliffs that start in Llanberis and finishes on Crib y Ddysgl. The nearby Clogwyn Station, is a stop of the Snowdon mountain railway. The summit is a rocky peak sitting out from cliffs which fall steeply down to the Nant Peris valley. The viewpoint is commanding, where the full prominence of Glyder Fawr, Y Garn, Elidir Fawr and Crib Goch can be admired.[1]
