What is the name of this rock and whereabouts in N Wales do I find it? ^^

Is it the Canon on Tryfan or is that a similar looking rock?

Thanks very much in advance!

That's the Cantilever on the top of Glyder Fach and can be reached from Ogwen Valley.

Cannon is more angled, like a cannon, and is on the North ridge of Tryfan. There is a better background (mountains / valleys) in pictures taken of the cannon, but less of a sense of precariousness.

It is common to visit both rocks on the same outing, starting at the base of Tryfan and doing the North ridge, down S ridge of Tryfan and then onto Glyder fach either via Bristly ridge or the Miners path.

Just take care if you go up Bristley ridge as apparently there has been a rockfall recently and some bits are a bit unstable.

I think the 'rockfall' comment was relating to the already chossy top of Dexter gully (or one of the others) rather than the usual Sinister gully route. I haven't been up there myself for a couple of months though, so might take a peek next week.

Me and the mrs had sex on that rock! Then we jumped Adam and Eve, and I sat her on the cannon on the way down

Mate, it takes bariatrics:) .Worth a go:). We got someone to take a picture. Better than all these cheesy photos on it. Hang out with the Pagans on the solstices. It's a religious experience:)
