Pen y Garn tops a 500–600 m high plateau situated on which is the controversial Cefn Coch wind farm. The summit contains a very large shelter cairn hollowed out from the remains of an ancient burial cairn. The summit also has a trig point. The wind turbines are very near the summit. To the north the whole Plynlimon range can be seen, including the summits of Y Garn, Pen Pumlumon Fawr, Pen Pumlumon Llygad-bychan and Pen Pumlumon Arwystli. To the west is Aberystwyth and Drygarn Fawr to the south .
