Tre'r Ceiri hillfort stands 450 metres above sea on an exposed peak of Yr Eifl on the Llŷn Peninsula in Gwynedd. It is one of the best preserved and most densely occupied hill forts in Britain, its stone ramparts surviving in places to near full height and enclosing over 150 visible stone houses. Excellent days walking that can be combined with a trip to Nant Gwrtheyrn with a good beach and coffee shop.

This was a beautiful walk to the top of the hill....but following the root on way back over large rocks was in my opinion dangerous. Who ever created this route obviously decided to take the shortcut straight down the hill over large rocks on a steep hillside with no path. I would personally go back the way you came and enjoy the beautiful scenery at the top. Tre'r Ceiri takes you to exact same spot and much easier and safer to walk. I climbed this on the 6th Feb 2020
