Garnedd Ugain, sometimes incorrectly referred to as "Crib y Ddysgl", is a mountain in Wales that forms part of the Snowdon Horseshoe. It is the second highest peak in Wales, and lies just under one kilometre north of Snowdon itself.
Carnedd Ugain in Welsh means "Cairn of the Twenty" (the form Garnedd is the result of soft mutation). This was named after the Roman legion based in Caernarfon.
The web pages of the Welsh Mountaineering Club suggest that the name could also be a corruption of "Carnedd Wgon", and so named after the prince Wgon sung of by Dafydd ap Gwilym or possibly after the 13th century poet Gwgon Brydydd.
