Steeply-dipping middle Ordovician sandstones form the peak and the ridge to the right. The underlying Capel Curig Volcanic Formation (centre) is intruded by a thick (c. 100 m.) dolerite sill (centre left). On the extreme right of the picture the Pitts Head Ignimbrite is exposed in the core of the steeply plunging Idwal syncline.
