Craig yr Undeb
Craig yr Undeb
Seen from the water, Craig yr Undeb is a spectacularly bright object which shines on the western shore of Llyn Padarn from almost any point. Whilst its political significance is celebrated, geologically it is also of interest as it is magnificently smoothed by a glacier running down the valley during the last glacial maximum. The pale colour and resistant nature are due to its composition, rhyolitic tuff of Precambrian age whose original grey colour becomes bleached with weathering at the surface. Crags on both sides of the Llyn show the same colour and form.
