Quick Facts
This is the height of the mountain above sea level. However, on the climb, it is the ascent that matters, i.e. the sum of all the uphill parts of the route.
782 m (2565 ft)

This is the standard notation used on Ordnance Survey Landranger maps.

Each reference consists of two letters identifying a 100,000 metre square block then three digits defining the Easting and finally the three digits defining the Northing with reference to the South West corner of the block.

NN166712 is the grid reference for the summit of Ben Nevis. Where you are given the map number ( For Ben Nevis = 41) it is acceptable to omit the two initial letters e.g. 166712. (Instructions on how to read the references are given on the OS maps).

A description of the characteristics of the mountain including any hazards of which you should be aware.

Moel Hebog (2500ft+) , a southern neighbour of Yr Wyddfa (3000ft+) in the Snowdonia National Park (Wales), dominates the village of Beddgelert especially when approached from the NE. It is the highest and most SE of a group of 3 hills comprising an undulating ridge: Moel yr Ogof (655m) lies 1.2 km to the NW of Moel Hebog, and Moel Lefn (638m) a further 0.7 km NNW. There are crags to the E of the summit; and also to the N of the well-trodden ascent track from Beddgelert, which follows a NE spur ridge.
Hazards you may encounter on Moel Hebog include
 Crags near summit.
General Considerations
 Temperature decreases by 1degree C for every 100m of ascent.
 Wind usually increases with altitude.
 Visibility can change markedly with cloud level.
 River/Stream levels can increase markedly in one day.
